What a magnificent day to be an otter- it’s World Otter Day!

Join us as we celebrate these adorable animals and the vital part they play in our ecosystem. An incredible adaptation for North American river otters is their built-in goggles. Their third eyelid, called a nictitating membrane, automatically closes over their eyes as they enter the water, protecting their vision while they swim and play!

Dive into the lively world of these adorable creatures here at the Caldwell Zoo.
