2 Otters and 2 puppies in a creek! What fun.

Our two rescued otters with our two canine puppies. The otters have been raised to be released, but after two failures, they are too human bonded to safely release now. But they have a lot of freedom to roam our 5 acres/2 hectares during the day and swim in sea coves and mangroves when the weather is good. These are Asian small-clawed otters who mate for life. These otters' mom was killed and we have raised them since they were only a week old. They are sisters. They are very expensive to feed so viewing my ads really helps me a lot as I get income from the clicks and views. They each eat 1 kilo or 2 1/4 pounds of raw crabs and fish per day. Thanks for your support. Unlike pet otters you see on Facebook, they will not eat dog food pellets. We feed them their natural diet of crabs and fish. When we can, we take them foraging on their own for crabs, but the weather is not always permitting. Their habitats are slowly being taken over by developments. Many are poached as pets leaving infants to die as they are very difficult to nurse.

Otter catching and eating fresh water shrimp

Caught one of the girls eating a fresh water shrimp from our creek! The orphaned Asian small clawed otters go out for their daily enrichment, exercise and hunting skills.

We otter go boating and watch dolphins

We went out early in the morning with the otters to see if we could find dolphins to watch. Boy! Did we ever see dolphins. The otters chirped with excitement when they saw the dolphins.

This video is after we were heading back from dolphin watching to have a nice BBQ lunch on the boat in a lovely cove in Binunsalian Bay Puerto Princesa Palawan. See more videos on this page.

The otters love to just hang out on the boat with us, their non furry family.
