  • Sorry, but your kid is not this cute

Every mother will say their baby is the cutest. But before you get carried away doting on your little one, just have a gander at this newborn -- who really is the cutest.

This adorable otter has made one Oakland mother very proud, and just in time for Mother's Day. He has two brothers (equally adorable) who were seen splashing around the Oakland Zoo Thursday afternoon, presumably prepping for their first Mother's Day swim routine.

River otter Ginger birthed the male trio -- Kohana, Hinto, and Shilah -- on February 24. Ginger is clearly a prolific mater, as this was her third litter.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
