This webpage will always be a work-in-progress. What I have here now barely scratches the surface of all I've learned from these otters. I plan to add many more chapters as time goes on, so check back every once in a while to see if there's something new here. I hope you enjoyed meeting my otters! It's a treat I always enjoy sharing with others.
Thank you for visiting!
