Yeah, but can it use indoor plumbing?

One of my kids favorite things at Mesker Park Zoo is to climb through the clear plexiglass tunnel in the petting zoo area and watch the otters swim overhead. Truth be told, I think it's pretty cool too, but it's not as easy for me to get in and out of there like they can.

As cool as that is, I don't think we have any otters at Mesker that can do what Nellie the Otter can. Nellie lives at the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium in Tacoma, Washington and has been taught how to stack three toy cups through an "enrichment" lesson. Why? I have no idea. But I do know it's pretty cute.

Speaking of otters, our own Evansville Otters are back in action this Friday and Saturday with three home games against the Road Warriors. Friday night's game begins at 6:35pm followed by a double-header on Saturday at 1:35 & 6:35pm. All three games will offer one dollar hot dogs, peanuts, popcorn, and beer!
