These adorable photos show a tiny otter cub who is being hand-reared in complete silence - after she was found abandoned at less than two WEEKS old.

The poor cub weighed just 107 grams when she was discovered under a pile of logs by the RSPCA and taken in in hopes that her mother would come back for her.

Now, at two weeks old, she is receiving round-the-clock care at a wildlife rescue centre - where staff are not allowed to talk around the cub, in order to prevent her from imprinting on humans.
