On September 30, 2014, a week-old female pup was found alone on Coastways Beach in California between the San Mateo and Santa Cruz county line. The pup has been adopted by the Shedd Aquarium and is doing fine.
Now the pup 681 weighs 6 pounds and is 22.6 inches long. Initially, the pup was being taken care at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The pup was just 2 pounds in weight when a person on an evening walk heard the newborn otter's cry.
