  Otters are some of the most playful and captivating creatures in the animal kingdom.  There are 13 identifiable species, each with their own unique characteristics.  However, they all depend on water to survive.  Most live in and around fresh water, while others prefer salt water.

Otter species can be found around the world, including in cold northern climates like Alaska.  These otters are specially adapted to the snow and ice, even going so far as to "play" along the edges of the water.  Many have been observed sliding down the banks on their backs and bellies.  In 2021, the United States Postal Service created a set of four Forever stamps picturing otters' wintertime behaviors.  Each features original pen, ink, and watercolor illustrations by artist John Burgoyne.

While most of us have never seen otters in teh wild, they are one of the most popular exhibits in zoos.  Their speed and grace mesmerize visitors, and their playfulness can brighten anyone's day.  And, while other animals are often brought inside during winter months, otters revel in the snowy weather.  There are countless videos on the internet of zoo otters slipping and sliding around their enclosures.  The millions of views these videos garner is a testament to the otters' universal popularity.
