Watch the moment a hilarious praying otter desperately avoids getting his paws wet.
This adorable otter was spotted by William Drumm, 31, in Moss Landing, California, swimming circles whilst trying his hardest to keep his front paws above the water.
William, a photographer and filmmaker, said: “I don’t know why, but sea otters seems to hate getting their little hands wet if they don’t have to.
“They often will keep their hands above the water, awkwardly avoiding dunking them.
“I could just imagine him saying over and over again, ‘don’t get your hands wet, don’t get your hands wet’.
“My favourite place to travel to is all over the California coast, especially Big Sur and Monterey Bay.
“There are incredible kelp forests there, and crazy amounts of biodiversity, thanks to it being located next to the Monterey Canyon, a huge deep sea trench located just offshore.”
