Stop, Drop, & Roll

Even though Fire Prevention week was last month, this River Otter continues to enjoy practicing his...


Stop!


Drop!


& Roll!


Until 2 people on bikes come barreling towards him....then into the reeds he goes. Luckily the Otter was able to continue his drying process there.


After a swim, Otters will dry themselves by vigorously rubbing themselves in the sand or grass. I always find this process amusing to watch as they seem to enjoy it so much. They remind me of how my cat behaves when it has a toy with cat nip on it.


Wow, that was exhausting!


Time for a snooze!

  2. Oh my gosh...this is a very cool post. I don't see these guys often and you got great pics:) Cute little guy. Glad the bikers didn't hit him. I almost did this once with a skunk. Luckily we didn't collide and that is a good thing:P
