Where Are the Otters?

If you’ve been out in Animal Discovery Zoo lately, you may have noticed something missing from the otter exhibit… the otters! Olin and Jelly have moved to the SciQuarium in preparation for the grand opening on June 29. They have been joined by two additional otters and the two pairs will rotate days on exhibit in the SciQuarium. Currently taking up residence in the newly vacated otter exhibit are a groundhog and four Indian runner ducks.



After a long time off exhibit, Woody, the Center’s 9-year-old, meteorologically inclined groundhog, is now on display for visitors to see. He can often be found napping in his shelter, running through the grass enjoying warm temperatures or studying up on the latest climate data.

Although the Indian runner ducks have been with us for about 9 months, they have spent this time off exhibit and were used exclusively for educational programming. Now, guests have the opportunity to view Zip, Dash, Bolt and Sprint outside of the classroom! Although they are named for their vertical stance that allows them to, well… run, they can also be found taking a dip in their pond!
