Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan Questions & Answers

Gold Coast, Australia

The website says the Otters aren't on show, is this just temporary? We aren't going for a few months but Otters are our favourite and like 90% of the reason we would go here.

When I was there in Dec, the Otters were a huge bunch and playing joyfully.

We were in July 2017 and as I recall there were at least 3 otters. The suggestion to email them before you go sounds good.

Hi, I would send them an email and ask for more details. The otter area wasn't large, they are cute but a small part of the overall aquarium. The whale sharks are the big attraction and the massive crabs.

コツメカワウソがいます。カワウソの仲間では最も小型の種類です。東南アジアに分布し、四肢の指に小さな爪があることから名前が付きました。

Thankyou for your replies! I will email them and see if I can get any info!

Oh we definitely would like to see the whale sharks

But Ive never seen the sea otters in real life and they are probably my favourite animal besides the Red Panda haha.
