Animal Friend of the Week: Asian Small-Clawed Otters

wellington-1-106601x

Otters are highly social animals.  They’re a tight-knit group and do almost everything together – including eating, playing, swimming, and napping in a pile in the sun or on their heated rock.

Asian Small-Clawed Otters live a fast-paced lifestyle, as they have extremely high metabolic rates to help keep their bodies warm in cold water. This means that our group at Wellington Zoo get fed six times a day.

In the wild

IUCN: Vulnerable

Asian Small-Clawed Otters are found in the freshwater rivers, swamps and wetlands of southern and southeastern Asia. Habitat loss is the biggest threat they face in the wild.

You can help protect their native habitats by purchasing sustainable timber and paper products marked with the FSC (Forestry Stewardship Council) logo.
