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