Sea Otter Gives Itself Massage At Lisbon Aquarium (VIDEO)

We all have our morning routines, but very few usually involve a dual head-and-foot massage.

At the Lisbon Aquarium in Portugal, one sea otter starts its day off right, with a scrub-down and a massage. In a video posted to YouTube Sunday, the otter manages to massage his head and feet at the same time. Heck, it's almost as coordinated as this basketball-dunking otter.

According to National Geographic, sea otters are "meticulously clean." The mammal, which spends the vast majority of its time in the water, often uses its paws to clean its coat after meals.

Sea otters are currently classified as endangered on the International Union for the Conservation of Nature's Red List of Threatened Species, due to its "vulnerability to large-scale population declines."
