Otters

Here is a video featuring two Asian small-clawed otters that some may find restful while others may question the ethics of owning otters as pets. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=hy_2QQkHEHI

Nice. Would a baby otter beat a kitten in a fight?

There are a number of owners of Asian small-clawed otters in Japan who film their pets for YouTube and some also own cats. Here is an example. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Bc17epewZsQ

Aty and UI are two popular otters. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=kUjwLs4eVyw

Would have to say the otter looks considerably more relaxed than the cat.

Hana and Kotaro are two very popular otters. Kotaro, the male, has a distinctively teddy bear-shaped face and some behavioural traits that have led some to believe he has a form of obsessive-compulsive disorder. Hana, the female, likes to "table-juggle" objects. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=8fg-JimLvc4

Otters are lethal killing machines, surely.

They're just wet ferrets surely? Do they smell at all?

Complete the punchline:

“That’s a lovely otter, what’s his name?”

“I call him Temperature”.

“What an odd name, why do you call him that?”

“Well, you see…”

We have otters in Glasgow, in the Kelvin. Clever chaps; the Kelvin flows through both main Glasgow Uni campuses, including the one with the Vet School.

Healthcare free at the point of de-rivery

BADOOM-TSSSSSSHHHHH!

We once saw otters in a zoo being fed. Fluffy little yellow chicks, as it happens. Since then, I have been wary of otters.

it was the stuff about ultra-cute sea otters being rape-murdering necrophiliacs that slightly put me off them

I wonder will this post get delayed

Only if you added a -y

elderberry - 11 Mar 2022 13:09:14 (#17 of 40)

good to know I can call an otter a rotter without censorship

Fluffy little yellow chicks, as it happens.

Did they lob a handful of live ones in, then place bets on which lasts the longest?

Zoo keeper is a famously boring job, so they have to find amusement where they can.

ReverendBlueJeans - 11 Mar 2022 14:21:11 (#19 of 40)

It's fairly standard zoofood, them dead wee chick things. Clearly there are producers somewhere raising the chicks and killing them and then distributing them to zoos whose animals stubbornly refuse to go vegan.

Isn't it waste from the egg industry, which only wants female chicks?
