Ice Breaking Otter

http://youtu.be/EJpF6WrffVQ

The cold resulted in freezing up the Otters Pond at the Twycross Zoo in Atherstone England. The Oriental small clawed otter isn’t quite sure about the the frozen water. He’s trying to brave it with one paw and manages to break off some of the ice. In the end he turned out to be a right Ice breaker as a piece of Salmon that a keeper through landed on the frozen pond. When he comes out his mate wants a piece of the fish, but after that struggle to get to it, he’s in no mood to share it.
