Antlered Otter

Lincoln Park Zoo is proud to announce the arrival of a rare species—the antlered otter. Native to the frosty northern regions of China, this aquatic mammal has not yet been exhibited in a North American zoo.

The lone female, to reside at the Pritzker Family Children’s Zoo once it clears quarantine, was discovered in New York as a stowaway on a freighter from the Far East. She was turned over to the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, which determined that Lincoln Park Zoo was the best destination for her.
