WWT Slimbridge: Otters keeping cool with Fish Lollies!


WWT Slimbridge: Otters keeping cool with Fish Lollies!

The otters are keeping their cool at WWT Slimbridge with the help of some special fish lollies.
 
Keeper John Crooks has been busy making the lollies by putting ingredients such as smelt, trout, minced beef and sardines in moulds to create the chilled treats.
 
John, said: “It isn’t just our visitors enjoying ice lollies in this hot weather our otters love them too!
“They enjoy playing outdoors in all weathers so this is a way of keeping them cool with the added bonus that the texture of the ice gives their teeth a bit of a clean too.”

 
WWT Slimbridge has three North American River Otters called Flo, Minnie and Ha ha.
 
You can see the otters at daily feeding sessions at 11.30am and 3pm each day.
