This Sequoia Park Zoo Otters Video Might Be Just What You Need Today

The Sequoia Park Zoo posted the video with this explanation, “River otters Toby, Etu, and Takoda greet the first staff on-grounds with a whirlpool of bubbles and play.”

Just watch, rinse, and repeat for a better day.

Otter be more videos like this.

When I lived at Eel Rock back in 1960 there was a well established otter slide in the clay mud across the river. Fun to watch. Otters do two things extremely well, eat and play.

Arcata Marsh has them. Cal Poly does a study of them or used to.

Great video. Just wondering and not wanting to be a turd in the punchbowl but were these otters orphaned and relocated to the zoo or they would have died without their mom? The reason I ask is because all people have to do to see otters is go to any local river and they are everywhere. They are kinda in a prison at the zoo just like the orcas at Seaworld. Otherwise, carry on and I hope they have a good life at the zoo.

Must say they are not readily visible on any local river and not “everywhere”. I’ve fished, floated and boated the Trinity and Klamath rivers since ’75 and I have seen otters, but not everywhere, anytime. Alot of adults and kids cannot go to any local river and wait for wildlife to appear, so being cared for in a nice environment where all can enjoy them anytime is a good thing. You’re not in the punchbowl. Yet.

I believe they were most likely orphans. The zoo usually takes Animals that are to tame to be released back into The wild. The rescue facilities do their best to keep things wild but due to some amount of human contact daily, release isn’t always an option… thus, the zoo is the next best option.
