This week I’d like to share a few recent video snippets of Ollie the Sea Otter as she grows up at the Aquarium of the Pacific.

Ollie the orphan sea otter pup that has found a home at the Aquarium of the Pacific last fall is growing up fast. The staff has already taught the little otter several husbandry behaviors that will help them care for her in the future. She’s also being introduced to one of the exhibit animals Brook, our eldest female otter. Brook is very patient with young otters. She previously exhibited that patience with the Furball when she was first introduced to Little Maggie a while back. She’s a good first choice to introduce Ollie to the other otters of the Aquarium. A cute sight that I watched last Saturday was Ollie attempting to help Brook when the elder otter was trying to groom her fur.

Check out the video below to see how Ollie is progressing.

Keep up the good work, Hugh! I love reading your blog and finding out about how all the otters are getting on. I am visiting for the second time from the UK next week and am booked onto the sea otter encounter, hoping to see Ollie!

Glad everyone enjoys the updates.  I must admit I really enjoy working with and documenting Ollie each Saturday.  She’s fun to be around.
