Poll results are in!!
As you can see on the right, the polls are closed and the winner again by a large margin is Otter! If I had known this frisky Feline was so popular I would have started a blog about Otters instead of Fruit. There is some contention as to what animal family the Otter falls in to. Is it a Fish or a Rodent? Some kind of miniature aquatic Bear perhaps? The truth is nobody knows for sure, but scientists all agree on a few keys facts:
Otters lay eggs - Otter nests, or 'damns', are constructed by the mighty redwood trees which they fell themselves by gnawing all the way through the trunk with their super-hardened teeth. They build these nests high in the clouds in the form of massive wooden castles. The trees also consist of the Otters main source of nutrition, via their sap which they sop up with their long-prehensile tongues.
Otters can swim, and rarely, fly. They do this only during mating season in order to construct their wooden fortresses as I stated earlier.
Otters have no natural predators other than the sky-Buffalo. Sometimes these two species wage war in the skies, this is where thunder comes from.
Otters make good pets. They are clean, and need little exercise. They make terrific guard animals as they emit a ferocious growl akin to a Lion when they sense strangers. Just make sure to have it spayed, or it may fly away during mating season. And keep it entertained. It doesn't take much, usually a few squeaky toys and a PSP or other portable gaming device will suffice.
I hope you enjoyed this informative article and maybe even learned a few things about Otters.
