Baby Otter Is So Excited To Chow Down, Then He Decides To Lie Down Instead

You know that special feeling you get when you see your food arrive in a restaurant? Or when you finally get to sit down to a meal you worked really hard on?

Well that feeling is immediately followed by a dilemma — do you hold back and eat your food in the reserved, coy, socially acceptable manner it should be consumed?

Or do you go hog wild on your plate and inhale it as fast as your throat will allow?

No matter how hungry I get, I usually try to opt for the former, though all I want to do is throw my manners out the window and shove food in my face faster than I can pronounce it.

But that’s what makes animals so great: They don’t really care what people think and are usually able to eat their food in the most messy, crazed way possible if they please.

This is definitely the case for the baby otter in the clip down below.

The little guy, named Cartel, chows down on his food and doesn’t attempt any form of decorum — he smacks his jowls, he gets food all over, and he even lies down to eat at one point.

If you’ve ever had the urge to unleash your inner animal onto your dinner plate, check down below to live vicariously through Cartel.

And don’t forget to SHARE him with friends and family on Facebook.
