American nautical theme parks make seals do tricks for entertainment; Japanese theme parks, apparently, domesticate otters to serve their visitors. In the video above, an otter at Tsukumi Dolphin Island, which Grist likens to the Japanese version of SeaWorld, grabs a juice from a vending machine before relaying it back to the customer. It’s like a dog fetching a newspaper, but a thousand times more awesome (it’s an otter!) Exploitative? Most likely. Insanely cute? Definitely.
