Cheetahs In My Shoes

living with the imaginary menagerie and all that it entails

See It, Snap It, Love It – Animals


Animals are just a perfect theme for me.  I have hundreds of photos from the zoo and took a load more on Sunday ready for this and then the memory card snapped and all those pictures are lost *sobs*.  You’ll have to wait a little longer for the picture of the baby giraffe, the lynx kittens and an update on the cheetah cubs, instead I bring you the oriental short clawed otters.  I took these in August and they were squeaking for people to come and pay them some attention…

The otter with the stone is called Flash – he loves his stones.  Very much.  He will choose one and then carry it round, limping with it in one paw for the sympathy, he hugs it, he juggles it, he balances it, he puts it on his friends backs and then gets it back…

So instead of a single picture, here’s a little slideshow – I give you Flash… and his stone.

  1. Oh my goodness, so cute. I love when animals have funny little traits like that. And he clearly does love that stone. X

    • Seriously cute – I could watch them all day. The whole carrying his stone with one paw whilst limping on the other three (and looking around for sympathy) is just adorable…

  2. They look so happy playing together there

    • they’re a funny bunch – very fickle about the weather but so inquisitive and entertaining when they do grace us with their presence!

  3. The otters at Marwell often play with stones too, it’s very cute! Lovely photos!

  4. EEEEEE we love otters – and their squeakiness!

  5. How cool is that?! I have so many favourites. Lovely slideshow. I think we need to go find us some otters to introduce to my wee man!

  6. Fantastic pictures. Aren’t they just adorable?
