We kicked off the week with a special birthday themed enrichment session in River Otter Falls during our Awesome Otters keeper program. You might see more celebratory treats and toys on exhibit throughout the week as well. Follow along on social media for even more fun!
About River Otter Birthday Week: According to keeper records, Maya and Benny were born on February 15 while Delmar was born on February 20. So while Louie, Hunter and Digger came to the Aquarium with estimated ages, but no birth records, this week in February is considered by keepers as a birthday week for all.
