Otter Follows Boy: San Diego Zoo Otter Makes A Friend

Animal mimicry takes many forms, but few are as cute as this.

An otter at the San Diego Zoo seems to have taken a liking to this little boy following him wherever he goes. He just can't seem to shake him.

It might just be the red shirt, or maybe he really wants to get out, but either way it seems he's found a friend. The sleek swimming of the little mammal is a sight to behold as well.

This is why we love zoos.
