New York Aquarium Takes Care Of Orphaned Baby Sea Otter (VIDEO)

The New York Aquarium is now home to a cute, cuddly orphan sea otter.

Five-month-old Tazo is under the careful supervision of animal keeper Nicole Pisciotta, who has served as the pup's surrogate mom since shortly after he was rescued from the Alaskan wild in June.

Tazo was taken from the Alaskan SeaLife Center to the New York Aquarium two months ago. He is now 27 pounds and should be on public view by the end of the year.
