The Conservancy of Southwest Florida recently helped to rescue two baby otters seen here eating breakfast and looking adorable.
These two baby otters were found completely unresponsive alongside a body of water near Orange Blossom Drive in Naples. After getting a call about a dead otter in the area just a few days prior, when someone called to alert us to two babies with no parents in sight, von Arx Wildlife Hospital Director Joanna Fitzgerald went out herself to bring the pups back to the hospital.
Most people are more familiar with the sea otter or Asian small clawed otter. The giant otter is the largest of the weasel family but is still as intelligent and social as its cousins. Watch this video to learn more about the giant otter.
Happy Valentine’s Day from CuteOtters.com and the Shedd Aquarium.
The Seattle Aquarium has a new sea otter, Mishka who went on display last Sunday.
Mishka, Russian for “little bear,” is coming to Seattle from the Alaska SeaLife Center in Seward, Alaska. She was rescued after being caught in a fishing net last summer, rehabilitated at the Alaska SeaLife Center and was deemed non-releasable by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

From NBCDFW.com: Asian small-clawed otter Tasanee beat the odds to survive; she needed more than 100 days of devoted care from her keepers, because single otter pups usually do not make it.
Luna the otter pup is looking healthy after being found abandoned recently. She’s set to make her public debut at the Shedd Aquarium around spring. I can’t wait!
This is great news for researchers as they will now be able to study a nursing mother up close and monitor her caloric needs.
The pup remains nameless, since researchers plan to release it in the wild this summer, after it weans off its mother’s milk. To avoid the pup developing an attraction toward humans, researchers limit their interaction, enclosing the pool it shares with its mother behind a screened fence. Its gender remains unknown.
