Aquarium Added Little Holes To Hold The Little Hands Of The Adorable Otters
AQUARIUM ADDED LITTLE HOLES TO HOLD THE LITTLE HANDS OF THE ADORABLE OTTERS
Petting zoos have been around for ages, offering children of all ages the opportunity to interact with goats, pigs and ponies. But did you know that there are places where you can interact with otters? Not only will you get to know them, but you will also have the unique opportunity to hold their little hands.
The TikTok video shows footage of Tokyo's Keikyu Aburatsubo Marine Park and the Dubai Aquarium. At both locations, the otters appear to be in transparent enclosures with small vents. When a visitor approaches, the otter excitedly runs to the glass and sticks its tiny paws into the hole. These creatures not only love meeting new friends, but they also love hand massages from humans.
A well-known trait of otters, besides their adorable faces, is that they sleep holding hands while floating in the river. This serves a real practical purpose, but it's also a super cute scene that can melt the coldest hearts. According to American Oceans, the action is called "rafting" and is seen as a sign of affection. It also helps keep your body warm and save energy.
This is why otters love to hold hands with aquarium visitors, even if only for a short time, as the benefits are numerous. While some have expressed concerns about the welfare of the otters, they seem to always have their owners by their side. After all, this kind of activity goes beyond friendly encounters and can always spark renewed interest in conservation. Finally, this is a reminder that these creatures are just like us and that just someone stopping by and showing a little kindness can change their day.
