Meet the otters

Introducing our Asian short-clawed otters – Mimi, Musa and their son Buster!

Watch them going for swims, rolling around in mud, juggling pebbles on their tummies and greeting the public with squeaky cries.

Asian short-clawed otters are the smallest of all 13 otter species and classed as vulnerable on the IUCN Red List; facing threats from poaching, illegal trafficking for the pet trade, pollution and habitat loss.

Commentated feeds are twice a day – 11.30am and 2.30pm. Learn more about the work WWT is doing to help them in the wild as they devour tasty treats and be sure to come ready with lots of questions for their keeper!
