Otters Revisited - Varmints! - 62

Otters Revisited!

In this week’s Varmints podcast we’ll rerun our discussion about otters! Otters were suggested by Varmints listener, Andrea. Thanks Andrea! Go check out her blog! Everyone knows otters are cute, but did you know they can juggle? You’ll hear more about that and a lot of other fun otter facts. You “otter” Join Paul and his new co-host, Donna, and learn about these amazing critters! Come on in, the water’s adorable!

Here’s some stuff we referenced on the show:

We like fart humor and we know you do, too. Turns out farts are serious business, and there’s some serious science happening with them too. Here’s an article about a database of animal farts and why it’s important to know about them. Check it out, it’s a hoot, or is that a toot?

If you were a kiddo in the 90’s or perhaps a parent of kiddos in the 90’s, you’ll remember PB&J Otter. Here is the cheerful “Noodle Dance” just for you! Use your noodle! Courtesy of YouTube user The90stvfan.

Now for the 70’s and early 80’s kiddos, take a look at this video and relive fond memories of Jim Henson’s Emmet Otter’s Jug Band Christmas. It’s a bunch of Muppet otters playing bluegrass. What’s not to love? Courtesy of YouTube user Mark Trammell.

Well you may be poor with a wolf at your door
But money isn’t everything
You still got the sun and a river full of fun
And you’ll always have a song to sing

No otter show would be complete without looking at some videos of otters being cute and silly. They love to play and some of them even juggle! Courtesy of YouTube users Flippers & Feathers and John Workman.

What’s a group of otters called? Well, if they’re marine otters, it’s called a “raft”, and he’s a super cute pic of one in action. Courtesy of Wikimedia Commons.

And finally, the pièce de résistance, a clip of baby otters eating cereal. Well, it’s kibble in formula but still. You’ll never be the same. Courtesy of YouTube user FRANK CUESTA - CANAL YOUTUBE.

Squee! Aaaagh! Killer cute, killer cute!
