The pun in the title of this post may have given away today’s topic…
- As always, we start with punny animal names: Sam Otterston and Otter Preminger.
- Up next, an otter playing with rocks. This video… well, it rocks. (Insert rimshot here.)
- Then, a video of two baby otters learning to swim. The cuteness is epic.
- Otters are the new cats? You be the judge.
- As Dr. V will tell you, G is for Giant Otter. Not familiar with the Giant Otter? That’s okay – take a moment to gaze at some adorable babies. Once you’ve sufficiently cooed over their cuteness, then check out these otter facts.
- We’ve been focusing on wild otters, but did you know that some people have otters as pets? I had no idea. (Anyone want to educate me here? Otters are wild animals after all, so I’m kind of skeptical about the wisdom of having one as a pet.) In any event, check out this video of these pet otters hanging out in their playhouse and this one of a pretty adorable otter named Sydney.
I leave you today with a video that captures some very excited otters in action – warning, if you have the sound on, I have a feeling your dog will do the head tilt. Perhaps repeatedly.
