Meet "Oscar" the River otter

Oscar

Meet "Oscar" the River Otter. Oscar was an injured orphan found on the side of a road and Mom was nowhere to be seen.  Due to being a single baby and his young age, Oscar did not have the skills required to live in the wild and therefore we found him a home in a legal sanctuary/zoo. Oscar is now living with "Suzie" a female Otter at the Alameda Park Zoo in NM.  Oscar is AMAZINGLY smart and will make a great Education Ambassador.
