There's a New Animal at our Zoo

My boys and I enjoyed some time at the zoo yesterday. 

Our credit union was offering a free stuffed animal to the first 100 kids to visit the zoo in December. The boys were thrilled to each receive a stuffed otter. 

It was a special reminder of our visit since it was our first time seeing the newest additions to the zoo... the river otters.

They were adorable and when the boys held their stuffed otters up to the window the real otter was curious and followed it when the boys moved it around. It was cute.

We learned that while river otters spend so much time in the water they don't actually know how to swim when they are born. The mother otters have to take them into the water and teach them how to swim. Interesting.
