The otters are back.
Those delightful ocean-going furballs -- the sea otters -- are back at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, according to the San Jose Mercury News.
The otters have been MIA, AWOL and otherwise not available to view since Sept. 4, when their tank was closed for a $3 million renovation.
The tank is a two-story-tall, 55,000-gallon contraption, the newspaper reported. It was "badly" in need of fixing.
The aquarium is the United States's most prominent place to see sea otters, the newspaper reported. It has taken 625 of the creatures in for safekeeping since opening.
Five otters will be in the public tank on Saturday.
