Asian otter escaped from Dutch zoo, video


This 19 November 2015 is by Maarten Venema from Leeuwarden in Friesland province in the Netherlands. He saw an otter approaching. First, Mr Venema thought it was an Eurasian otter which occurs in this area. However, Eurasian otters are shy and this animal was not.

It turns out this was an oriental small-clawed otter, escaped from the local Aqua Zoo. Meanwhile, that otter, called Splash, is back in the zoo.
