Otter Is So Good at Balancing Things

Via LIFE, which writes:

In 1953, LIFE ran a story about pet otters – LIVES OF GOOD OTTERS – so popular that it prompted quite a few ‘Letters to the Editors’ to publish more. This image was the bonus that ran in the Feb. 2, 1953 issue.

    Is the article on-line anywhere?

      The original article seems to have appeared in the January 12th, 1953 edition of LIFE Magazine, but even Google Books does not seem to have that issue saved. Let us know if you find it, please?

    That is one chubby otter!

    …appropriate, perhaps; she seems as content as Buddha just lying there, balancing an apple on her head.
