Otterly exciting opportunity right here! Come enjoy lunchtime with our cheeky Asian small-clawed otters. One of our boys will pounce all over you excitably as he is fed some of his favourite treats such as fish, nuts and crayfish!

After spending fifteen minutes interacting with our otters and our knowledgeable keepers – you will feel like an expert on their behaviour. Guests are encouraged to ask questions and learn more about our otters while participating in their playtime.
