What’s better than being completely in love? How about being “madly in love”?
When we last reported on the ancient Asian short-clawed otter Harris who had lost her mate, she had just dipped her toe in the dating pool. Now thanks to Otters Fishing For Love Online Dating Service (because apparently there is such a thing), Harris has found his match.
With a profile couple looking particularly promising, Harris was moved from his home in Cornish Seal Sanctuary to SEA LIFE Scarborough on the Yorkshire coast, where his new partner, Pumpkin, who had also lost his previous partner, awaited him. (According to experts in the species, blind dates with otters work best when the male connects with the female on his own ground, or in this case, in the aquarium enclosure, rather than the other way around.)
The honeymoon period and the short honeymoon period of the newly known pair of otters went smoothly. Aquarium staff report that the pair have bonded wonderfully and all signs point to a long and happy union.
“After an extremely sad period for both Pumpkin and the Animal Care team here in Scarborough, we are delighted to report that not only is Pumpkin happy once again, but Harris has adjusted extremely well and has already become a part of it. from the SEA LIFE Scarborough family, “said the show’s curator Todd German.
While he missed him at his old home, Harris’s friends and caregivers are excited for him too. “We are absolutely delighted that Pumpkin and Harris are getting along so well and that he has adjusted so quickly,” said Cornish Seal Sanctuary curator Tamara Cooper. CNN.
And in the words of SEA LIFE Scarborough, may they “live happily after the otter.”
