Monterey Bay aquarium welcomes new sea otter

The Monterey Bay Aquarium has announced that a new sea otter was introduced at the aquarium on Tuesday. According to the aquarium, Ruby, a non-releasable southern sea otter, is the latest otter to join the raft (a group of otters is called a raft). Ruby was raised at the Monterey Bay Aquarium before moving to New Orleans. But, as the Aquarium of the Americas in New Orleans begins repairs of its sea otter habitat it had to find a new home for Ruby. At 6 years old, Ruby is the youngest of our raft, which includes Rosa, Ivy, Kit and Selka. “Ruby is a very inquisitive sea otter and extremely interactive with all the enrichment items we have been giving her. She learns quickly, is very charismatic, and we look forward to having her on exhibit with the rest of the raft,” said Jessica Wan, senior sea otter aquarist. You and your audience can find out more about Ruby on the aquarium’s website and see her on their sea otter live cam. Central Coast Spotlight: The last week in September is Sea Otter Awareness Week.
