Hungry Otter Rooting Around Fridge For Late Night Snack Is All Of Us
That's the takeaway from a hilarious new clip in which Cartel, an Asian small-clawed otter, opens a fridge in search of a snack (as one does).

When Cartel isn't helping himself to leftovers, he can be found living his best on Instagram, where his adorable antics have drawn a following of 274,000+ fans (don't feel bad, this is the world we live in now).
