Meet our Asian small-clawed otter family
Come say hello to our Asian small-clawed otter family – Mum Asia and her babies Mai, Charvi and Kiri! This cheeky group of otters are playful creatures who love splashing about in their pond and adventuring around their habitat.
Our family of Otters have been with us since 2017 when they moved to Butterfly Creek from their previous home at Perth Zoo. Each of our otters have their own characteristics that make them unique! Some are sweeter than others, some are more confident than others and even their coat colouring differs from one another.
Asian small-clawed otters are the smallest species of otters however what they lack in size, they make up for in their feisty personalities. They are highly intelligent creatures and may even show off some of their tricks next time you come visit them!
Otter encounter – get up close
Come along to our free encounter at 11:30am each day where you will see our Otters getting fed by the keepers and they may even show off some of their tricks – for more information on our Daily Encounters click here. We also offer a special paid private encounter with our Otters where you will be guided around their enclosure with one of our experienced keepers and even get a chance to hand feed them! Don’t forget your camera!
