Watch: Otter Repeatedly Sledding Down Snowy Hill On His Belly

  • by: Jeremy Smith

The Minnesota Zoo released a video of a little river otter sliding down a snowy hill on its little otter belly, and then turning around and racing right back up to the top to do it again.

The otter decided to try a little slip-n-slidin' this morning after the Twin Cities was dealt a record-breaking amount of snow. The video was taken by the zoo's Tropics Trail supervisor Tom.

The zoo posted the video of the otter on their Facebook page, along with the caption "When life gives you snow, go sledding!"

Follow our river otter's advice...when life gives you snow, go sledding! Our animals are loving all this fresh powder!Thanks to Minnesota/Tropics Trail supervisor, Tom N. for this awesome video!
