SARASOTA — In this Memorial Day weekend edition of “Feel Good Friday,” SNN’s Grant Boxleitner spent some time at Mote Aquarium, where the otters exhibit, “Otters & Their Waters,” has become one of the top draws at the attraction. There are dozens of positive reviews on travel web sites and social media of the trio that often slides into the pond of their two-tiered habitat on a water-fall-like chute.


Aquarium assistant vice president Evan Barniskis talks about the otters and their popularity during the segment.


Visitors are able to watch them catch fish being tossed into their enclosure by Mote staff as they listen to a lesson about watersheds and ecosystems. And these furry animals play with and chase each other nearly nonstop. The Mote Aquarium is open throughout the holiday weekend. There’s more information at Mote.org.
