Otters are usually very busy, it's good to see they also get some time to rest

>> No.4045  

>>4004
That depends on if it's in the water or on land,

In the water sea otters swim on there backs, so a sea otter on its stomach would be an upside down otter

But on land sea otters walk on their feet, so a sea otter on its back on land would be an upside down otter

An otter is an upside down otter if it would usually be the other way up in the given context

Ottmin's reasons are their own, but after the cafe shut down so suddenly I'm quite glad we have our own place and didn't have to scramble for a new home. Plus it's quite cozy here, it's our own place with our own rules and cool people who think otters are neat.

Let's talk about the different shapes of otters' heads. Funny thing I noticed, otters (at least some species) tend to have some kind of ridge down the middle of their heads. Does anybody know why they have this?

Oh, that's still a nice theory though, and it does make sense. Maybe there's another explanation though.
You were studying to become a neurosurgeon? That's really cool, how's life been going since you dropped out? I hope you found your calling.

>> No.2519  

>>2518
I'm glad you think it's reasonable, it's the best explanation that I could come up with for why there'd be a ridge like that in that specific area. And technically, I wasn't studying to be a neurosurgeon, that's just the specialization that I was looking at before I dropped out of med school. But that's neither here nor there, I suppose. Life's been fine since then though, I'm looking at becoming a teacher of some sort, probably teaching English if I can do what I want.

Animals have to be smart to be able to do stupid things. Only intelligent animals can even come up with stupid things to do. That's why otters, raccoons, etc. are so funny, because they're intelligent. Stupid animals can only sleep, eat and do normal things which is why they're less funny. That's my theory at least. What do you think?

>What do you think?

Agreed 100% The inquisitiveness of otters is what drives them into so many "stupid" situations, whereas simpler animals just don't have the same curiosity about the world. A fish, for instance, is going to live its simple fish life and not be overly curious about changes in their environment past how it immediately relates to their capacity to find food or be safe from predators. On the other hand, when an otter notices that his environment has changed somehow, he immediately jumps to investigating it, even if it doesn't at all impact his ability to hunt or stay safe. And this is why fish are otter fuel, and otters are not fish fuel.

^This! Otters are curious and thus mischievous. They live in complex habitats with a lot of varied food sources where they benefit from being curious. Sometimes I suppose their curiosty gets the best of them lol

True! It is possible to overcome disadvantaged starting conditions with sufficient effort. Any otter who tries hard enough can achieve their dreams! Though I wonder the NFL would think about an otter player. As much as I wish it would be an air bud situation I'm sure they wouldn't be cool with it. A local team probably would be though, who wouldn't want an otter teammate?

Lol, the site was broken during that and everyone was getting autobanned, it would have been nice to see one or two otters on the catalog though, you guys are always welcome :love:
We should have the site up and running like normal in a few days
