Swoosh!

I’ve noticed that I feel more concerned about animals than I do for humans. If you told me your grandpa had arthritis, I would nod sadly and politely. But if you told me this otter had arthritis, I would exclaim “OH MY GOD THAT IS SO SAD THIS ADORABLE OTTER HAS ARTHRITIS!” Fortunately the Oregon Zoo is all over it to keep Eddie the otter as spritely as possible. Key to his elbow-flexing regimen are shooting some hoops in the pool: he has a tiny, adorable basket and a tiny, adorable basketball. He’s actually pretty good! “Eddie almost never misses,” a zookeeper explains. “And if he does miss, he keeps going until he makes it.” For dunking baskets, Eddie gets some fish. Maybe you can replicate this with grandpa. [Smithsonian Mag]

Note to self: never go to Boca Raton and observe a rabid otter. Done and done. You don’t even have to ask me twice. Also, I’m adding “otter attack” to my ongoing list of random things to be terrified about. [The Daily What] Keep reading »

An Otter Swimming Lesson Is The Cutest Thing Ever

Human childhood is filled with traumatic experiences. And so, apparently, is otter childhood. Turns out, otter pups don’t know how to swim and actually have to be taught by their moms! Watch this video to see how the process works, which basically starts with momma otter dunking her kid in water, the baby otter trying to escape, only to be pulled back into the pool with mom’s teeth. Seems terrifying. Yet—who knew terror could be so cute? [Cute Overload] Keep reading »

You Know You’re Jealous! Otters With A Lifelong Love Die Within An Hour Of Each Other

This is a story about otters. Gay otters. Gay otters in love. OK, OK, I don’t know for a fact that Daz, 19, and Chip, 16, were in love, but the Daily Mail says they were “best friends” who “lived side-by-side for 15 years” and those sure sound like euphemisms for gay otter love to me. Anyway. Tragically, but adorably, Chip and Daz died of heart attacks within one hour of each other. Sob! Zookeepers at the Naturelands Zoo in New Zealand say it seems the second otter passed away from the stress of watching his mate die. “The only consolation from this is that they both went together,” zookeeper Gail Sutton told the Daily Mail. “Because if one had gone without the other, the remaining one would have been really lost.” Awwww. It’s just like that Ben Folds song. [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »
