Lewis Otter Doing Better After Losing Mom


Lewis the otter is doing better after losing his mother. He will be released back into the wild when ready with three other rescued otters.

 The cute 10-week-old otter, nicknamed Lewis, is now being rehabilitated at the Scottish SPCA National Wildlife Rescue Centre in Fishcross, Clackmannanshire, and has joined two female orphaned otters called Dipper and Dalis.

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.
