Cheering on the Otter! :130:

Go Otter Go!

:popcorn:
Here I thought there was nothing lower than a snakes belly in a rut in a ditch. I was wrong.

My vote goes to the maker of the pond.

Nature made pond = Otter
Man made pond = Koi
When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

Team Otter. Cute, fuzzy, intelligent.

Versus

a cold-blooded fish.

Go, Otter!

I'm rethinking my choice of team otter as the koi are extremely old and valuable. Madonna is reportedly to have been 50 years old.

RIP Madonna

The otter is natural to BC, Koi? Show me a BC Koi.

The Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden... is the first Chinese or "scholars" garden built outside of China

Wikipedia
Not all environments are good for otters and in this case it's a lose/lose. I'll be happy to hear it's been relocated to a more suitable place. Love watching them in their natural habitat.

Team Otter
He must feel he's at a buffet.
Koi.. not a fan. And the otter doesn't know man made from Nature pond.
Altho they are great dancers :p

I'm not on Team Otter after reading up on koi. The otter will live on but koi have the ability to reach ages over 100 so it seems a shame to lose older fish because of a predator that doesn't belong there.

Koi prolly didn't belong either. Wonder how the Japanese Garden here keeps theirs safe from Heron.
Guy told me they go to the bottom and semi freeze thru the winter
Just catfish really

Koi was deliberately put there - same as the gardens - so of course they belong there. Think I read a heron also has been a problem since the otter moved in. Ripple effect. And no, koi aren't catfish - more carp-like.

Fancy - I really feel you otter rethink your team side :)
Herons LOVE Koi, wiped out a friend's pond in I swear a day
Used to be a beautiful green one at the Japanese Garden... it was very very big
ah, the circle of Life.

'k - that was funny. I just hope the otter is placed elsewhere safely because they are so damn cute.

I have an otter posse on my FB page - I swear we ohh and awww over every otter vid.
Maybe the otter needs a mate ( or maybe he has one and is stealing Koi to feed the family :/
When they float holding paws I melt
