Otter training!

Otter training!, originally uploaded by Erin *~*~*.

First Mickey texting gloves, now otter training – how could this day possibly get better?

Anyone who has read here before has long since figured out that otters are my all time favorite "cute aminal". Well, today I was fortunate enough to happen by the otter exhibit on Discovery Island in Disney’s Animal Kingdom just as otter training was commencing.

It’s a bit dappled and dark at the otter pond so iPhone pics aren’t the best – but I’m glad I got to watch. The trainers remarked that this particular female otter does better if you give her the commands from the side rather than head on – I wonder if maybe she’s got a sight issue?

Pretty cool to be here for this 🙂
