Toni - The Baby Otter from Duncan McCall.

This North American River Otter was found abandoned in an old vacant building. After it was determined that the mother otter was not going to return for the baby, a concerned citizen brought the baby to the Wildlife Sanctuary. She’s been kept warm, clean and bottle fed a special diet every 4-5 hours. When she is old enough, she will be sent to an otter rehab facility in south Florida where she will be introduced to and socialized with other otters her age & size. At the right time, she (Toni) will be release into the wild to live a happy life.
