Rocket
This is one of our otters that James Gunn (the director of Guardians of the Galaxy) helped name. He can be a little bit of a troublemaker when it's time to get out of the pool, but Rocket's such a sweetie!

I currently volunteer at a wonderful facility that mostly offers up-close animal encounters to Make-a-Wish children. If you'd like to learn more about what Nurtured By Nature does and how you can help, please visit their website.

Bullet; Blue Along with vocalizations, Asian small-clawed otters use a pair of scent glands at the base of their tail for communication. Bullet; Blue

Little Yogi
For the small amount of time I got to work with him, this little guy quickly stole my heart. He had such a sweet personality and helped me through the loss of my 14 year old dachshund, Venus. It had been 3 days since I lost my little Venus when this photo was taken and, as soon as Yogi came out to play, he instantly crawled over to me and curled up in my arms. He was the first one to make me smile after her passing; that was when I realized that, despite the hole in my heart, things would eventually be all right and I had plenty of love and support from my human family and animal family.

Watching Me Watching You
Since I work with Asian Small-Clawed River Otters, I forget how HUGE the North American River Otters are in comparison. I think there was a group of two in this enclosure, but this was the only one active. 

One of my favorite moments was when this one (I'm assuming a male) grabbed a bunch of leaves and tried to shove it into his den with (I'm assuming) the female. Very unimpressed with his gift, she quickly threw them out of their den. It was adorable!

Bullet; Blue North American river otters eat mostly fish, crayfish, and amphibians. Bullet; Blue

Say What?!
This was actually just a shot during mid-chew, but I love her face! Otters are so expressive, I can't stand it sometimes. Haha!

Bullet; Blue Asian small-clawed otters are extremely social, living in family groups as small as 3 individuals or as large as 30 individuals. Bullet; Blue

The Simple Things In Life
The best toys can sometimes be the simplest ones. Jelly and her siblings just love bottle caps! We give them all sort of toys, but it's normally the bottle caps, ice cubes, and marbles that are the most exciting.

Bullet; Blue The average lifespan for an Asian small-clawed otter can be 10-15 years, with some individuals living to be 20 years old. Bullet; Blue
