    One of my best ever experiences was seeing an otter in a sea loch in Scotland. It did the whole diving to find shellfish, then lying on it’s back and hitting the shellfish with a rock, then eating the shell fish. Then it did it all again, and again, and again. :-D

    I would probably spend half my day at the zoo just watching the otters and the other half watching the penguins.

    So cute but so smelly :D
    Picture 3: Those are some serious fangs, I’ve never seen them so prominently.

    avalus, they fangs not to be messed with, I suspect Marcus would lose a finger if he did try to tickle that cute tummy!

    And otter is saukko in Finnish. Saukko is also a family name, although one that is prone to bad puns because aukko is hole or orifice. I seriously doubt that anyone would name their daughter Anu if the last name would be Saukko.
