Your morning adorable: Otter + keyboard = cure for the blues

The good folks at the Monterey Bay Aquarium were looking for a way to extend mealtime for little Dua, an Asian small-clawed otter, while also providing him with an interesting pastime to keep him occupied.

Fact: Asian small-clawed otters are known for their manual dexterity, which in the wild helps them to grab prey like mussels, crabs and snails.

An idea was born: Why not give Dua his own keyboard?  The rest is history; can the animated film be far behind?

Amazing... I love River Otters and they are leaving the Monterey Bay Aquarium in September... So make sure to visit before they leave.

Wow - that is just about the cutest thing I've seen!

He's great. I could see him playing piano at an oyster bar!
