River Otters

Do you like to run and jump? Do you like to chase your pals? Do you like to splash in the pool in the summer? Do you like to slide down hills in the winter?

Well, if you like to do those things, you would make a good otter! You can see three of our river otters up on the rocks: Al-ex, Allen, and Agnes. That's Alex up on top of All-en. The last one is Agnes.

Otters have short, strong legs with webbed paws and sharp claws. The webbing helps the otters swim fast and get their food. River otters hunt for fish, frogs, and crabs.

When it is time for bed, the river otters scamper to their den. They have nests on land that are lined with grass, moss, and bark.
