How Animals Show Their Affection For Each Other

Sea Otters Hold Hands

Sea otters spend most of their lives in the water. Even when they’re sleeping! They simply lie on their backs and close their eyes. Of course, it’s much better when you can cuddle someone as well. And sea otters like to lie on their “waterbeds” next to each other, holding hands. So cute! It’s also practical, because it stops them from floating away from each other.
