ZSL’s adoptions just got ‘otter!
Sunday 20 December 2009
There’s a new animal casting her spell over our adoption programme – say hello to ZSL London Zoo’s Harri Otter.
Just like her famous boy wizard namesake, fun loving Harri can often be seen performing tricks. Her spectacular juggling talents entertain the crowds and it’s a well know fact she can make an entire crayfish disappear in seconds, especially when really hungry!
The first Harry Potter movie was filmed within the Zoo’s reptile house. In honour of this we named Harri after the main character – although she’s female so we’ve spelt it with an ‘i’.
Three year old Harri shares her home with her mother and six sisters. Visitors can see the eight boisterous female Oriental short-clawed otters running, swimming and diving in their purpose-built enclosure, which includes two pools and a waterfall.
The really wild gift, ZSL animal adoptions
For all of the animal, but none of the muck, an Animal Adoption is the perfect present.
Purchased online in minutes, they can be delivered immediately for all those last minute shoppers.
Adopt one of twenty animals from either ZSL London or Whipsnade Zoo, and receive access to exclusive online pages, regular email updates about the animal and a free ticket to the Zoo it calls home.
All adoptions help support ZSL’s conservation work for endangered animals and their habitats, both around the world and in the UK.
