In 2007, visitors to the Vancouver Aquarium
uploaded a video to YouTube of two otters holding hands
(paws?) while sleeping on their backs in their tank. The adorable video quickly skyrocketed in popularity, becoming a seminal exemplar of videos going "viral." The two otters were a female named Nyac
and a male named Milo,
who enjoyed many happy years at the aquarium after their rise to e-stardom. Sadly, after a struggle with cancer, Milo died this past Thursday.
