CHICAGO (CNN) — Chicago’s Shedd Aquarium has welcomed a new baby, and it has fur instead of fins. This adorable 5-week-old southern sea otter arrived last week from California.

The Department of Fish and Wildlife rescued the pup on Oct. 1, after someone found her orphaned on Coastways Beach between the San Mateo and Santa Cruz county line. Caregivers say the yet unnamed pup has been doing well, receiving around-the-clock care behind the scenes.
