Today I went to my zoo class on otters. We learned all about otters. Their fur is waterproof and they have webbed feet and slender bodies. They’re great swimmers! We played a game where we pretended to be otters and had to collect food and try to survive. I collected 58 of the 60 lbs an adult otter needs to survive for one month in the winter. We also got to visit the river otter at the zoo and feed her carrots. She balanced a carrot on her head, because her mouth was full, and swam to shore. Nancy, my zoo teacher, said the trainers taught her how to do that. It was really funny.
The snow has finally melted so I asked my Dad if we could go outside and clean up all of the garbage that had been hidden in the snow piles. He said sure so I put on some rubber gloves, grabbed a trash bag and went to work. I picked up a full bag of garbage! I think it made the birds happy, because after I cleaned up, I spotted 11 different types of birds, including a rafter of turkeys!
