Otters Enjoying Halloween

Otters in zoos may not get dressed up in costume for Halloween, but that doesn’t mean they don’t enjoy it!  Every year, zoos across the globe give their otters Halloween enrichment, like pumpkins and fishy ice-treats in the shape of scary bats, and I can’t help but wonder if the otters remember this tradition, year after year.  Well, whether they do or not, they sure seem to enjoy it.

Happy Halloween and happy Ottersday :#)
