Where are the otters when they are not on exhibit?

Here at the Zoo, we have four otters: two males named Sailor and Skipper and two females named Sara and Heather.

At this time, all four are not on the exhibit together, so we need a safe off-exhibit area for at least two of our otters to go when it’s not their turn on exhibit. We call this area, otter holding. We have two of these holding areas, one for the girls and one for the boys. Each area contains a pool, a place to rest and lots of enrichment items to keep our otters active, both physically and mentally. Here is a special behind-the-scenes look at our otters in their holding area.
