There wasn’t a lot of staff, paid and volunteers, back when the Aquarium of the Pacific first opened in June of 1998 so my early volunteer responsibilities included a lot of duties outside the realm of marine mammal husbandry. One of which was hand feeding sharks including one of the aquarium’s charter animal, Fern.

The sea otters at the Aquarium of the Pacific, as part of their enrichment, are given toys to play with during the day. They are also taught to retrieve these toys so that they can be put away at the end of the day. Well, one day one otter was having too much fun with her toy.

To the audience, it looks like a sea lion imitating a retriever canine catching a frisbee in mid-air. For Harpo the sea lion, it showcases his prey catching abilities.

Building a snowman for the sea otters during the Holiday Treats for the Animals festivities at the Aquarium of the Pacific has been a tradition for the husbandry staff since the early years of the facility. Ollie the sea otter has added her own twist to the tradition.
