british river otters

I love Sammy. He was rescued as a pup by the Otters and Butterflies sanctuary where they helped him grow big and strong. Unfortunately he didn’t want to be released (this is always their aim when they take in wild otters) as he kept following the humans trying to release him.

He’s very clever as he found that if he touched his back paw with his front paw it made the keepers laugh so they gave him food! Sammy is really playful and shares his lovely large enclosure with another British River Otter called Teagan (she’s very shy).
