“That’s not blubber or anything,” DeAngelo said. “It’s just the angle of her hips and the way she’s rolled. She’s one of our most photogenic animals.”
Abby is one of five sea otters at the facility, which helps rehabilitate orphaned pups, the Times reported. She is herself a rescue animal that was not able to be released back into the wild, but the pups she helps raise are.
DeAngelo told the newspaper she was surprised by the photo because the otter is "actually very pretty and usually perfectly groomed."
“We said, ‘Oh, my gosh, look at her!’ She’s not a big animal.”
