It's getting ‘Otter’ at the National Sea Life Centre Birmingham

With today set to be the hottest day of the year so far, the National Sea Life Centre’s resident otters are keeping themselves cool with some tasty ice lollies, courtesy of the team at the underwater attraction in Birmingham city centre.

The ice enrichment always comes as a welcome treat for Starsky and Mango as temperatures rise.

Curator at Sea Life Birmingham, Jonny Rudd, said:

The pair are always happy to meet visitors to the aquarium who are looking to take a break from the sun, just don’t expect them to share their ice lollies!
