The Asian Short Clawed Otter Here at Old MacDoanld’s farm we have two lovable Asian short clawed Otters, one male and one female, appropriately named “Giggle” and “Wiggle”. Asian Short Clawed Otters Can be found in the south of Asia and to the southeast of Asia, they are the smallest Otter species in the world and like their Otter brothers they are seriously threatened by rapid habitat destruction, hunting and pollution. Their population trend is decreasing despite being a protected species they are endangered. Here at Old MacDonald’s Farm we would like to make visitors aware of the growing needs for conservation and the protection of this species and their homes. If you would like to learn more about Otter’s and conservation or would like to donate to the cause please visit www.otter.org to learn about the IOSF The Otter Survival Fund.
