North American River Otter Webcam

Housed in our Flooded Forest Habitat, these young, playful North American River Otters rarely stop moving. Both orphaned at a young age in different areas of Iowa, it was determined that neither was a good candidate for release. Now this male and female otter have become fast friends. If you don't see them, they may be taking a quick nap or grabbing a bite to eat, so come back soon!  Our otter cam is live from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
