This Otter Is the No. 1 Reason to Be on Instagram

If you find yourself getting tired of an endless stream of selfies and baby photos on Instagram, try following Takechiyo the sea otter instead.


If you find yourself getting tired of an endless stream of selfies and baby photos on Instagram, you might be following the wrong people. We humbly suggest you start following animals instead, starting with Takechiyo the otter.

 

 

With the username ponchan918, Takechiyo's owner, Ayako, shares daily photos and videos of this cutie, who appears to be an Asian small-clawed otter.

 

While we don't know the story of how Takechiyo came to live among humans and do not advocate keeping exotic pets, he seems healthy and happy.

 

His favorite activities include snacking ...

 

... snuggling ...

 

... plotting ...

 

... battling robots ...

 

... napping ...

 

... modeling ...

 

... watching TV ...

 

... hanging out with friends ...

 

... nibbling friends ...

 

... smashing records for extreme cuteness ...

 

... hiding (very well) ...

 

... and, most of all, bath time.

 

If all our friends' photos were replaced by Takechiyo's, we wouldn't even mind.
