Meet Shedd's Rescued Sea Otters: Pup 870 and Pup 872

Welcome the newest additions to the Shedd family: Pup 870 and Pup 872! These two southern sea otters, estimated to be 9 weeks and 10 weeks old respectively, were rescued by Monterey Bay Aquarium in May and Shedd's Animal Response Team went out and brought them home to the aquarium in July, where they are thriving behind the scenes.

Shedd's Animal Response Team is there at a moment's notice—learn more about their work.
