Meet Howard, the Zoo’s newest North American River Otter. Howard was born March 11, 2016 at the NEW Zoo and was brought to Hogle Zoo as part of the Species Survival Plan (SSP) in 2017. He can now be seen on exhibit with one or the other of our female otters, as the two females do not get along with each other. It may be a few years, but it is hoped that at some point he and Nessie (our younger female), will be able to produce offspring.
