Move over keyboard cat! What's better than a bunch of otters happily playing a keyboard?
Any other answer is 1000% false.
The Smithsonian National Zoo has some very adorable residents: a family of Asian small-clawed otters. These little guys are already so insanely cute as it is, we can barely handle them. So why did someone have to give them a keyboard??
Seriously, that snake vs. crocodile thing we posted earlier this week was NUTS. This hasn't been a great time for giant reptiles!
Now we have to endure this??
Actually, this is kinda adorable. Is that bad to say?
Yeah, basically — because otters are often the best predators in many freshwater habitats. That means they have no natural predators of their own, and rule with a soft paw and iron jaw.
Apparently the otter even pulled the juvenile gator up onto a bank and straight up ate it after these pics, "as evidenced by crunching noises."
Still, kinda cute right? We can't help it!

Oregon Zoo has a super cute North American River Otter named Tilly, who just had some babies!
She had a pup earlier this year and now she's just had another baby earlier this month.
River Safari, part of Wildlife Reserve Singapore, is now the proud home of Asia's very first Giant Otter baby!
The first one born in the country at least.
Giant Otters are one of the most endangered otters in the world so this little baby is a tiny miracle.
The male pup weighs about 3.5-pounds and is around 2-feet-long.
That doesn't sound too "giant." Though he will eventually grow to around 75-pounds and be about 6-feet-long!
The Chief Life Sciences Officer at Wildlife Reserves Singapore said:
Ah!! It's so adorbz we don't know what to doooo!
We already knew otters were super cute but good gravy this is ridiculous!
Some lucky bastard got to sit in a grassy field and have a happy otter crawl all over them!!
This otter is so crazy cute and so frickin' friendly it's ridiculous!
We don't even know what to do with ourselves.
Maybe we otter watch this vid on repeat all day! LOLz!

No matter what, otters will always be cute.
It's like they're just built to make you awwwww!
At Sea Life Oberhausen in Germany, two beautiful sea otters were just hanging out on a stump.
They were just living the otter life, hanging out, being generally adorbz, when one of them grabbed a rock.
Then the unthinkable happened…
No, he didn't smash the other otter's face in! Why would you even think that? LOLz!
He started playing catch by himself! It was so amazing.
So check out the video (above) to see this amazing otter play catch with himself.
What a lucky little cutie otter!!
Elfin, the seas otter, lives at the Vancouver Aquarium in Stanley Park, Vancouver, Canada.
Stanley Park is celebrating its 125th anniversary so in honor of the event, Elfin is the lucky otter who gets to celebrate things right… giant cake style!!
The aquarium made a big cake for Elfin, and don't worry, it's otter friendly.
The cake is made of shrimp, crab, muscles and clam "icing." Yuck! Sounds gross, though we guess that's an otter's fantasy meal.
Elfin was rescued as an orphan in Alaska and nursed back to health with the help of the aquarium's Marine Mammal Rescue Center staff.
So he extra deserves to be the one to eat a big cake!!
Check out the video (above) to see a cutie otter eating a giant cake!
