Is the roof on fire? This sea otter from British Columbia seems to think so.

The cuddly creature was captured kicking back in a bed of seaweed by award-winning photographer Matthew Maran, who spent several years shooting wildlife and landscapes for his new book, Vancouver Island: Barley to Clayoquot.

During his trek along the West Coast trail, Maran's lens captured black bears, sea lions and bald eagles. But none of them were quite as camera-aware as this otter, who meticulously groomed himself with his sure paws.
