Just a quick update for you on the progress of Sammy and his new friend Teagan who is on loan from the Tamar Otter Park.
As you may know the two were introduced recently and are now getting on just fine.
This is good news because European otters do not share space easily and it takes time and care to get them used to the idea of sharing. In the wild they are mostly solitary creatures so occasionally there will be an encounter with another otter male or female. However when kept together in an enclosure they see can each other all the time and until they realise there is no threat from each other there can be trouble that can result in serious injury or death.
