Sea Otter: one of the most adorable animals in existence

Sea otters are not only adorable, but also an important part of marine ecosystems. They help keep sea urchin populations in check, safeguarding carbon dioxide- absorbing kelp forests.

The Bornean orang-utan, Pongo pygmaeus, is the largest arboreal mammal. It spends almost all of its time in the trees, clambering between branches or using its body weight to bend and sway trees.
