There's never a dull moment in our sea otter exhibit!
The southern sea otters in our Sea Otters exhibit love to play with toys, lounge in ice buckets or just snooze.
The eagles regularly mated in order to produce fertile eggs.

This pair raised one eaglet successfully in 2015 and two in 2016.
We want to thank AEF Volunteers and Staff (special thanks to Patty Fernandez & Crystal Slusher), Sue Greeley with the USNA, Dan Rauch with the DOEE, and Craig Koppie with the USFWS, for providing information and photos to help create this “About This Pair” section. Since then, they both have been tirelessly carrying-out nest building activities ("nestorations") and adding hundreds of sticks and other soft materials to the interior of nest.
We feed ours four times a day, often putting the food in toys to stimulate the otters' natural behavior of pounding and working to get food out of shells.
Our aquarists also teach the otters behaviors, like holding a target with their paws or walking onto a scale.
