CHICAGO (WLS) -- The baby sea otter rescued in California is having a ball at the Shedd Aquarium, as she gets comfortable in her new home.

Dubbed Pup 681, she seems to be developing quite a personality, as shown in new photos released by the aquarium.

New video shows her playing in the water with new toys and interacting with her trainer. Shedd staff members are teaching the sea otter pup what she needs to know to grow into a healthy adult.

She was found abandoned on Coastways Beach in late September. The Monterey Bay Aquarium's Sea Otter Program worked with state officials to recover the newborn. She arrived at the Shedd on Oct. 28.

Can't get enough of Pup 681? The Shedd Aquarium and Monterey Bay Aquarium will host a Google Hangout On Air session on Tuesday, Nov. 18 at noon. Viewers will get a behind-the-scenes look at her progress and hear about what it's like to work with the baby otter.
