Our Planet has been absolutely brutal about their depiction of the troubles the Animal Kingdom – and then there’s an otter having a bath and suddenly our day is bright again.
The little furry creature decided to take a day off and make the most of its time in the sun and hit the water for a little pampering session.
It’s so cute we’ve already watched this clip alone about twenty times so we recommend you do too to counteract all the other news that may currently be bumming you out.
Knowing that the death of a walrus falling off a cliff face was upsetting viewers all over the world, Sir David Attenborough shared an otter having a little me time.
Nestling in a canopy, the little furry friend was seen bobbing about before taking their paws and giving their face a good wash.
We’ve heard seaweed wraps are particularly good for that kind of thing.
Our mission in life is to be more like the sea otters (Picture: Netflix)‘Sea Otters have the densest fur of any animal, and such a luxuriant coat requires a great deal of attention,’ Sir David explains.
Looking like he could be having a little sing-song (that’s definitely not a thing in our heads at all), the otter looks like they’re having a blast as they spent some much needed downtime.
Zoella would be quaking if the otter knew how to do beauty tutorials on YouTube, we’re just saying.
Lesson learned: self-care is extremely important, and Attenborough documentaries make everything better.
Now our day feels 1000x brighter and we hope yours does too. You’re welcome.
Our Planet is available now on Netflix.
