This otter at the Whipsnade Zoo outside of London was obviously dealing with some problems he needed a higher power to help with.

According to the Daily Mail, the image of the mammal in need of the almighty was taken by Marac Andrev Kolodzinski.

Kolodinski, 49, told the paper he spent two hours in the cold in order to get the shot.

"You don't get those snaps by chance. I had to keep wandering around keeping watch on what was going on, waiting for the right time," Kolodzinski told the Daily Mail. "The otter was running around cradling a stone under his arm when he was surprised by another otter jumping out of the water which caused him to jump and throw the stone in the air. … When he started trying to grab it, I took the snap."

The popularity of the photo has attracted flocks of the faithful, who want Kolodzinski to share his story.

"I've had lot of religious people call me up, saying that I was a tool doing the Lords work," he told the paper. "There was a guy from a religious cult that called me. … He wanted me to come out to Switzerland and preach to all these people about how I felt, and what I experienced at the time."
