Brook and the Furball | Hugh  buttonLink

Brook and the Furball

Brook led the good life. Being one of the Aquarium of the Pacific’s original sea otters back when it opened in 1998, Brook was treated like Royalty and became the Queen of the Northern Pacific Gallery. She is also one of the most beautiful otters in the State and seems to know it. The gorgeous otter that you see on ads across the country and on banners throughout the city is Brook.  She’s always carried herself in a dignified manner. She’s even greeted her trainers at the door of the exhibit and escorted them into her Kingdom during training sessions like a hostess in a high society affair. Then the Furball entered her life! This week’s blog features a video on the relationship between the Stately Brook and the Tomboyish otter that I like to call the Furball.

A New Adventure in “Otter” Space | Hugh  buttonLink

A New Adventure in “Otter” Space

The little orphan sea otter whimpered softly as she crawled onto my lap. Finding it a worthy substitute for a momma otter’s belly she proceeded to curl up and began to groom her baby fur with her paws. Still unable to fully tend to her fur all by herself I helped by using a towel and comb to work on her problem areas. After a few minutes her swirling paws were starting to slow down and her eyes were getting heavy. Then one of her paws gripped the towel I was using to dry her and moved it across her body like a blanket. Moments later the little furry critter was fully asleep on my lap looking like a child snoozing on a bed. Thus began my newest Adventure in Otter Space.

Tactile Training | Hugh  buttonLink

Tactile Training

In Nature documentaries when a researcher wants to physically examine a large wild animal you often times see them shoot a dart containing a sedative to immobilize the creature or physically restraining them with nets or ropes. Here at the Aquarium of the Pacific we have a different approach. We gain their trust so they allow us to physically examine them without fear and without the need of restraints.

Lola the Cockatoo Starts a Race

Possibly the best known animal at the Aquarium of the Pacific is not a shark or a sea lion. He doesn’t even know how to swim! He is Lola the Cockatoo.
