Take Some Time Out Of Your Busy Day To Chill Out With This Sea Otter Pup

Just can't get enough of Pup 681, the abandoned sea otter pup who arrived at Chicago's Shedd Aquarium late last month? You're in luck.

At 1 p.m. ET (12 p.m. CT) on Tuesday, Nov. 18, the Shedd and the Monterey Bay Aquarium, which originally discovered the pup on Coastways Beach in September, co-hosted a Google Hangout On Air session to update the public on 681's progress in the weeks since she arrived at her new permanent home in Chicago. The "poolside" session was moderated by journalist Bill Kurtis.

UPDATE: The hangout has concluded, but archived footage of the session can be viewed above.

Want to see how far little 681 has come in just a few weeks? Watch the pup learning how to swim shortly after she arrived at the Shedd, and check out some of her baby photos, below:
