Whether you drink your coffee black or prefer a frothy cappuccino, there's one part of a cafe most would agree on: It's probably better with otters. Because isn't everything?
Japan is known for its quirky animal cafes, and Harry Harajuku Terrace in Tokyo has taken the trend to a new level by bringing small-clawed otters into the mix.
The cafe already has 12 chinchillas and 50 hedgehogs, but apparently it just wasn't complete without otters.
Before guests can play with the otters, they receive a short training on "how to hold an otter." The cafe even created a short video to demonstrate, in case you want to practice beforehand.
Unsurprisingly, the cafe has been wildly popular, especially with international visitors.
"We didn't expect this many foreign people would take interest in touching otters. I guess otters have a universal appeal," cafe owner Mayu Saito said to Kyodo News. We're a little surprised that they were surprised!
You can take home a chinchilla or hedgehog along with your to-go pastry, but otters aren't for sale.
Small-clawed otters are a protected species, so they can't travel across borders.
While the cafe says they were legally bred and purchased in Japan, keeping wild animals like this in a domestic setting is becoming an increasingly controversial topic.
These animal cafes appear to be gaining popularity in Japan, and a shocking number of pet-otter accounts are increasingly popping up on social media.
