Emirates Park Zoo and Resort Introduces the UAE to Otters

Emirates Park Zoo’s otters are making their debut in Abu Dhabi, in time for the end of the summer break putting the otter in ottorable. The litter consists of 2 otters out of which 1 is male and 1 is female.

Zookeepers have named the otters Jackie and Bruce. “Our 2 little otters bring us so much delight. They spend the day playing, sliding into the water, wrestling each other and chasing their tails. It is come to my observation that our otter family are generally curious creatures,” said Dr. Waleed Sha’aban, Zoo manager of Emirates Park Zoo and Resort.



The loved otters have a diet that consists primarily of fish and meat. Considering the otters are fully grown, capable of swimming, and are in splendid strength, they are now available for viewing. Guests can even watch the otter feeding daily at 10:45 am, 3:00 pm, and 7:00 pm.

Sha’aban added, “If the guests are lucky, they can see the otters clean their fur by biting it and scratching it against rocks. Watching them in their imitating habitat is heartwarming and engaging, making for a memorable experience”.

Officials will also conduct an informative presentation about otters for the purpose of informing, educating and raising awareness on them who are recorded to be one of the most social members of the animal kingdom. For more information, visit   . To make reservation, e-mail or call 025069000
