    My Mom bought my family animal encounter tickets for the otter meet and greet. It was AMAZING. I was so impressed by how well trained the otters are. Cassidy, Carolyn, and Carrie did a great job and answered every question we had. This was a dream come true and recommend 100%!!!

    Conservation Corner: Asian Small-Clawed Otter

    The pet trade poses a significant danger to Asian small-clawed otters. Despite their cute appearance, otters need specialized care, including a diet of raw seafood and they tend to be quite messy and smelly. They are not suitable as pets. If you’re looking for an adorable experience, you can show your support for their conservation by visiting accredited facilities, like Tanganyika!
