Otters are curious and playful. This one is exploring a couple of humans who have stopped to watch him. You can tell they are a little nervous about what the river creature might do, but they are totally entranced.
A pair once interacted with one of our Akbash dogs at Pioneer Ranch.

I once had a bat hang around in my office for a month, coming in at dusk, leaving at first light.
The experience made me forever grateful to bats for their insect-munching ways. They are a crucial species. I never much liked the appearance of them before spending the month with my little visitor but am captivated by them now.
This little one’s mother rejected him, and the Bat World Sanctuary nursed him as he grew to healthy adulthood.
And I thought bats were odd-looking creatures. This one trumps them easily.
