The third most popular animals at the Aquarium are . . . the Otters! We have two species of these adorable creatures. The Asian small clawed otters are the smallest species of otters measuring only two feet long! Our other otters are ones you can find right here in Utah, the North American river otter. Every square inch of a North American river otter has about 387,000 hairs! The average human has between 100,000 and 150,000 on their whole head.

Who is the runner-up for Most Popular Animal at the Aquarium? Here’s a hint: this animal can swim up to 22 miles per hour. Find out what animal it is tomorrow!
