Otters team together to successfully fight off crocodile (video)

Oh god, the looks I’m getting from the dog while playing this video.  I get such a kick out of how animals can recognize the sound of another animal.

In today’s animal video, a group of otters band together to successfully fight off a crocodile.

I have to admit, I thought this was going to be another of those Wild Kingdom shows where all the nice animals get eaten and we’re supposed to learn some poignant lesson about the Prime Directive of nature shows.  But fortunately, such is not the case in this video.  The otters kick the croc’s ass.  They’re like the walking dead –  alone, not so formidable. In a group, look out.

    Maybe this is a great metaphor for us LGBT-equality advocates going up against the croc-breath forces of the GOP’s fundagelical base?

    I adore otters. They float on their backs and use their stomach as a dining table. That’s me on the weekends.

    I see your otters and raise you an Alaskan baby otter who – like Sarah Palin – took advantage of free health care in Canada this month and is now living it up at the Vancouver Aquarium otter pool. Warning cute baby otter video and pictures! http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2013/03/22/vancouver-aquarium-otter-pup-rescue_n_2936227.html

    It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog. Or otter, as the case may be.
