The sea otter has the densest fur of any animal on Earth 🌏 that acts as a waterproof barrier allowing them to swim and maneuver at high speeds while also keeping warm in harsh climates 🌨. They are extremely smart and use rocks to crack open the tough shells of their prey 🦀. Otters become attached to certain rocks that they find and will store it in a pouch under their arm, taking it out to play with, juggle, and crack open objects 💥. They are extremely social and playful, and even hold hands when sleeping so that they don’t drift away each other 🦦🦦. DM for photo cred.
South America plans gone South? Not to worry - we’re bringing the tropical jungle of South East Asia to you!
These July school holidays, we’re inviting you and your tamariki to explore the many tracks at Auckland Zoo including our recently opened South East Asia Jungle Track! Along the tree-lined track you’ll find our towering high canopy habitat which is home to our trio of orangutan and our two siamang – who you may hear before you see! After a pit stop in our new dining destination, Te Puna, pay a visit to our mischievous mob of Asian-clawed otters.
Before your Zoo visit, download the GooseChase app on your mobile device and search for our free and fun game, ‘Wildlife Explorers.’ Here, you and your herd can complete an array of animal-themed challenges and go in the draw to win a fantastic prize pack from our Zoo Shop!
Learn more about what’s going on these July school holidays on our website!

An otter using the wheels of a BMW Z4 GT3 (race car) as a bed is probably I think alone in this world.
BMW Z4 GT3(レーシングカー)のホイール(BBS)をベッド代わりに使っているカワウソは多分この世で一人だと思う。
The only place Aty's always been is in the brown stain.
Even if I wash Aty a couple of times a day.
Probably due to drooling or sniffling.
