    Why the barrier? Why didn’t they just give him the cheap keyboard?

    I would have practiced so much more if someone had fed me every six notes.

    My piano teacher could have just stood there with m&ms.

    Holy CRAP! Otters have weird paws.

    I reject the notion that the otter is playing because it’s being fed. The feeding has nothing to do with it.

    Doesn’t the human animal just love getting its jollies by making other animals perform – sad to see adults behaving this way.

    Encouraging the otter to “play” the keyboard isn’t of any value to to the animal, and only entertains the humans. Except for showing that an animal will do what it’s asked for food, I don’t see the purpose in this. In fact, I’m sorry to see an otter, which is a delightful animal in the wild, being exploited for a stupid pet trick. Thought of having a monkey ride a tricycle? How about an elephant wag its trunk in time to music?

    I agree with Charles; cute though it is, it’s exploitative.

    Not funny, not cute..just sad. Poor cute creature doing circus tricks in a facility that is supposedly there to educate the public. If I was in jail I would do stupid stuff for food too.

    To all of you naysayers…You do know that they said the same thing about MOZART!

    This otter will remain “in jail”, whether or not he is trained to scrabble at the keys of a cheesy synth for treats. Do you suggest that he is more exploited by the latter than by the former?

    If we could meet otter a little more than halfway, a waterproof keyboard and something tastier than dogchow…
    Tho I’m glad they stopped trying this sort of thing with the Orcas.

    Zooillogix ran across some groundbreaking research being done on tapeworms. The linked abstract below takes you into the life of a tapeworm with extraordinary first hand detail. Enjoy

    Big question is, how well do they run on iPad/iphone? Regardless if you choose HTML or flash its require extra work on touch devices and smaller screens. I tested my flash apps on android phone and it ran spectacular smooth

  18. Incredibly interesting information. Keep it up. Thanks!!!
