Creepy And Mysterious Things People Saw at Sea

The sea is just too big for people not to have complicated feelings about, especially when it comes to things like the still on-patrol submarines of the U.S. Navy. There are tales of hallucinations, weird natural events, and rare sightings among the many creepy things people saw at sea. Maybe it's the isolation. Maybe it's the constant bobbing and omnipresent exhaustion of anyone working at sea. Whatever it is, weird stuff happens out there.

The Proufound Thoughts And Actions Of Steve The Otter

Aw, Steve the Otter and his adorable thoughts and hilarious actions. It's been a hot minute since we last saw what was up with one of our favorite otters on Twitter.

Turns out, not too much was new with Steve but it's always entertaining to hear some of his thoughts because they are indeed very insightful. We believe Steve to have been a philosopher in his past life. Just seems fitting. If you don't agree with us, perhaps reading some of his quotes below might persuade you to think otherwise.

A shout out to otters everywhere, continue being your adorably weird selves

Turns out, baby Puffer Fish are heckin' adorable! Why didn't any of you tell us?! They either have this cute little smile and look like a wee baby or somehow look like an adorable old man. Either way, they are precious and must be protected. 

We don't often feature fish and it's a shame because some of them are really cute and deserve a chance in the spotlight! And now it's time for the Puffer Fish to shine! Baby Puffer Fish, that is. 

Honestly, we're not entirely sure all the fish images below are in fact Puffer Fish, but their cuteness got to us anyways and we felt the need to share.

This mother is doing its best trying to get her adorable mass of fur into the water. You can see the sea otter point to the water and look back at the pup, and you can just tell she is communicating with the pup to get in that water! However, seems like the little pup doesn't want to go. Just like a human kid, seems like baby otters can also throw a tantrum of their own kind. 

But, at the end of the day, we all know the mother will win and force you into that water. You put up a good fight, little pup! So much cuteness in one simple video, our hearts melt at the sight of this adorable and wholesome family display.
