@codycessna5038: Think about the intelligence here. The otter can understand the abstract concept of pantomime. It’s communication depends on its ability to mentally represent itself as the human and to imagine it’s head being pet from the human perspective. That’s incredible.
I love these examples of cross-species communication.
This really is wonderful, and the otter is SO CUTE!!!!!
The cuteness factor is high there! The eyes, that whimper.
Petting and being petted seems almost like a universal need, a universal urge. I’ve seen fish and spiders and birds … cross-species and within-species …
