Increase your chances! Hilarious moment: Pregnant sea otter jumps onto surfboard and roars at owner as he tries to fight her off

  • A pregnant black otter can be seen holding a surfboard in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Santa Cruz
  • The surfer doesn’t seem to know what to do in this situation and very carefully walks around the otter for fear of being attacked
  • Back on land, his friends are hysterical, having never faced such a situation before
  • Eventually, another surfer jumps up to give him a hand, but the otter starts to give chase
  • After about five minutes, the otter finds something to do and leaves the board behind, while the surfer quickly returns to shore

A pregnant sea otter could be seen stealing a surfer’s board on the shores of the sunny South Pacific California.

The footage, captured earlier this month by Chad Underhill-Meras, captures a confrontation between a sea otter and his friend Nick “Parts” Eriksen.

The five-minute video begins with a black otter taking center stage on a surfer’s prized possession.

The surfer is apparently incredibly careful with the sea animal and doesn’t try to knock it off his board for fear of being attacked by the possessive creature.

Eriksen can see himself splashing water on the animal, but to little effect.

His surfer friends back on shore can’t believe what they’re seeing and can be heard cheering and laughing at their friend.

“The otter started nibbling and biting the board,” Underhill-Meros said, adding that the sea otter was likely pregnant based on her girth and territorial behavior.

At one stage, the otter takes a quick dip into the water only to pounce on Eriksen.

The animal quickly manages to jump back onto the board.

Out of ideas, the server tries to slowly but surely return the surfboard to the beach.

No matter what the surfer did, the otter just wouldn't budge

Although the video is shot from some distance, the surfer continues to be careful around the otter and moves the board back to land very slowly.

A few minutes into the video, another surfer can be seen walking by and extending his hand to his friend.

He eventually manages to get the board close to the beach, but the otter chases after him, much to the amusement of those watching from shore.

Erickson eventually returns to earth and the otter finds other things to occupy his time.

“It crawled in and made itself at home,” Erickson explained of the incident CNN. “It’s like a pit bull puppy in a way. it looks cute, but know how dangerous it can be.”

“Apparently, this otter had been having similar episodes all week and tried to bite several other people the next day,” Underhill-Meras noted.

Posting the video on his Instagram, he joked: “Yesterday Monday was a real incident. A pregnant otter stole his surfboard, started biting it, and they had a confrontation. He got a little help at the end to get his board back, was almost attacked at several points and then chased after like a true local.’

Underhill-Meras also says that Eriksen had planned to get an otter tattoo, but may have changed his mind.

Back on land, his friends are hysterical, having never faced such a situation before
