The boys get their 'claws' round a tasty treat!
Our three lucky Asian Short Clawed otters get their claws round some tasty Velvet Crabs very kindly donated by 'Captain Stan's' fishmonger in Bembridge.
As you can see the boys are eager to tuck into their crabby treats which makes a nice change from their normal breakfast of chicks and shell on prawns!
In the wild these otters would primarily eat crustaceans such as crabs found in rocky crevices and muddy river banks of South East Asia. So its great to see them working for their breakfast as they would in the wild as normally by now they would be back for seconds!
