There is a new enclosure at the WWT centre (Wildlife and Wetlands Trust) in Barnes in London for Asian Otters. It has just been populated with four gorgeous 10month old, fully grown sisters. Asian Otters are the smallest otters in the world. They certainly have settled in nicely and are very entertaining to watch before feeding times, as they are then very active and curious and provide some fabulous photo opportunities.

During my visit they were fed with lots of tiny fish and one large fish each for their mid morning snack, and in the afternoon they were each thrown a boiled egg and a hollow toy filled with apple and minced meat… The sweetest animals …
