Southern sea otter pup Langly was orphaned when her mother received a fatal bite from a great white shark. Luckily, her mother was able to get Langly safely to shore where our trained responders were able to rescue her.
Sprout, a sea otter pup suffering from domoic acid toxicity, came to our hospital not long after Langly arrived. The two young otters formed a strong bond and spent much of their time swimming and playing together as they regained their health.
