The most social of all otter species, Asian small-clawed otters live in extended family groups of up to 20 individuals. Denver Zoo’s “ottourage” enjoys juggling rocks and jangling their keys, a favorite enrichment item. Come visit them in Village Hall in Toyota Elephant Passage!
Asian small-clawed otter populations are in dramatic decline, due to hunting and habitat destruction. With your symbolic adoption of a plush otter, you’re helping us to provide cutting-edge care for Denver Zoo’s otter family AND protect their equally cute cousins in the wild.
