The river otter exhibit at the Detroit Zoo recently underwent an extensive refurbishment and is triple the size of what it was. The exhibit went from 680 to 2,500-square-feet and the otter’s pond increased from 5,900 to 9,000 gallons – thanks to a generous donation from the Edward Mardigian Family Foundation.

Four otters call the upgraded exhibit home: 3 year-old Sparky, his parents, 11 year-old Lucius and 14-year-old Whisker, and 16-year-old, Storm. The adorable animals now have more play options than ever before with a flowing stream, a sandy beach, and a waterfall.

The exhibit is now open to the public.
