Welcome Peanut & Pickle!

A HUGE thank you to everybody who has suggested a name for our beautiful baby otter sisters. If you missed our live Facebook feed we're so excited to let you know that the team at the Tropical Butterfly House have chosen the names... Peanut and Pickle!

Congratulations to Sarah Watts! Sarah wins a family day ticket to visit us here at the Butterfly House as well as a cuddly toy otter!

Our otter babies are growing in confidence and can be seen venturing out at our daily Otter Talk and Feeding encounter at Otter Falls or you might just spot them through the window snuggled up in their cosy bed!

The girls are almost 3 months old and already showing their individual personalities with Peanut proving to be a little braver than her sister Pickle. They also have a big sister Renee who will be celebrating her 1st birthday on Sunday 5 May! Dad Otis and Mum Kumari complete our gorgeous Asian short-clawed otter family.

 Thanks again to everyone who entered our competition - we hope you'll come and say hello to Peanut and Pickle very soon!
