Post Sea otter jumps on a boat to avoid getting eaten by killer whales (video)

In Tutka Bay, Alaska, a momma sea otter saved herself from a group of hungry killer whales by jumping onto a boat. Her baby was not as lucky. When the boat owner radioed another boater in the area about what just happened, he was skeptical, saying, "Of course, you didn't get pictures." The response: "No, I took video."

Looks like having an adult fox as a pet is a lot safer than the big cats. I like the way the man carries him wrapped around his neck. I've had one very special cat that enjoyed doing that.

Thanks, no kudzu!
