Otter chewing food with delight becomes a social media star

Otters are probably one of the most underrated animals in terms of cuteness and one otter who features heavily on its owner’s Instagram account is determined to show everyone how adorable its species is.

 A GIF of the otter is gaining in popularity on social since being shared on June 1, but the original video can be found on the Instagram account @poncayan.

The Instagram account also shows other adorable videos of the otter, who appears to be named Takechiyo, chewing its food with delight, cuddling with its owner and snuggling into its blanket.

FP Edit: HOLY CRAP! I work overnights so I posted this right before I went to sleep this morning and woke up to the front page! You guys are awesome! Send me photos of your pets :)
