I saw this video on Yahoo and thought it was cool. It demonstrates several of the qualities I write about in my book Otterocity. Otters are very smart creatures. They are one of the very few animals that can problem solve and use tools. It is no surprise that the otter in this video actually thinks to jump up on the boat to escape the killer whales hunting it.
Another trait that otters possess is perseverance. They live their whole lives in the water and are constantly hunted by killer whales, sharks, and eagles. They must endure hardships, like bad weather, losing a pup to a predator, and foraging for food.
Otters are truly amazing creatures.
