A quick update on our otter cubs. Both Ottermus and Beatrix are doing really well, as you can see from the photo above of the pair of them with mum Emmy. The two cubs seem to be growing in confidence daily, they are often out and about and are beginning to learn the talk times. The past couple of weekends now we have had an appearance or two while doing our keeper talk.
If not seen out during the day, then they are nearly always out for feed time… currently around 4pm while we are open to the public.
They really are great fun to watch, so if you get the time do spend a bit of it waiting at the otter ponds. They are very playful at this age, and you can see them chasing each other on banks, diving in and out of the water and a bit of rough and tumble while they are in the water too.
A little picture heavy this post, but thought you would like to see some photos of the two of them from this week.
