Hi! Otter 'Waves Hello' to Delighted California Woman

A friendly otter waved hello for the camera in Moss Landing, California, video shared to TikTok on May 22 shows.

This footage was shot by Emma Baumhauer, a Los Angeles native who told Storyful she was on a hydrobiking vacation in Moss Landing when she spotted the affable otter.

“There were otters everywhere that kept popping up, and this one in particular was swimming by, and I was trying to film without dropping my phone in the water,” Baumhauer said.

“It looked at me and started waving! It was such a magical little moment of this little otter swimming by with it’s friend and saying hello,” she added. Credit: Emma Baumhauer via Storyful
