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 πŸ™‚

A Tree Of Many Totems

All around the Tree Of Life at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, there are paths you can wander from which you can view animals in their habitats as well as trees, flowers and the local wildlife that has been attracted to this lovely park. A key ingredient to that attraction is the abundance of water. It flows, it pools and it falls, over, through and between all manner of things built into the landscape. The whoosh of water is an ever-present lullaby in the background of this lush, jungle-like world. Let’s take a walk through it right now!


We’re inside a cave, with the water falling outside


The waterfall creates a constant, fine mist, which keeps things moist and encourages moss to grow.


Ooops, I think we’ve walked in on this giraffe taking a shower! πŸ˜‰


It’s a tree of many totems…
