Here's a family of squiggly wiggly otters enjoying Schoodic Point, part of Acadia National Park!The video taken just a couple of days ago was posted by the Schoodic Institute, the nonprofit organization located at the site of the former Navy base on the peninsula. According to the Institute's website,  they're "committed to guiding present and future generations to greater understanding and appreciation for nature by providing research and learning opportunities."

In the video it looks like playtime for mom and her family of little ones.  Otter pups usually stick around with their mother for about one year.  Otters can live to be 16 years old.
