Sea Otter (Enhydra lutris)--mother carrying pup.  Young pups that are too young to dive for food with their mom are left on the surface where they frequently drift off with the tidal currents.  Mom then goes and retrieves them, carrying them back to where she is diving for food.  The sea star on the pup has been fed on by the mom, then she gave it to the pup to play with--the pup does not yet eat solid food.
