Asian Small-Clawed Otter Gets a Check-Up

Born at Zoo Atlanta, in Atlanta, Georgia, a seven-year-old male Asian small-clawed otter, the world’s smallest otter species, has moved to Seattle, Washington at the Woodland Park Zoo, and must be examined for quarantine protocol.  Eventually the otter will be joined by a female otter arriving from the Bronx Zoo, and the pair will be part of the zoo’s new Asian tropical forest exhibit now under construction. Following the exam, which included x-rays and a weigh-in, the otter will remain in a temporary, off-view exhibit until the exhibit opens in May.


Happy Ottersday ^_^
