European Otter

The European Otter is the biggest representative of water weasels in Europe. Otters can reach a maximum length of 1.40 m (4'7"). They are predominantly active from dusk to dawn. They are excellent swimmers and can dive to depths of 18 m (20 yd). Their waterproof pelt contains up to 50,000 individual hairs per cm2 (323,000 per in2). They feed on gastropods, frogs, fish and water birds. Extensive population in the State of Brandenburg but threatened by extinction in other areas.

Otters are fed daily at 11 am
