Seaquest Las Vegas Debuts Asian Small-Clawed Otter Pups
SeaQuest Las Vegas is proud to welcome two new Asian small-clawed otter pups to the Interactive Aquarium located inside The Boulevard Mall. The Asian small-clawed otters are the newest addition to the aquarium, following the recent addition of two coatimundi and two capybaras. 

“Not only do guests get the opportunity to see these beautiful otter pups in person, but they also have the opportunity to hand feed them and get a behind-the-scenes look,” said David Nearhouse, SeaQuest Las Vegas General Manager. “An interaction with these creatures is a
great reminder why it is so important to protect animals on the verge of becoming endangered.”

Asian small-claw otters have very short claws that don’t extend beyond the pads of their paws. They are the smallest of all 13 otter species, grow approximately 3 feet long from head to tail, and weigh on average 12 pounds as adults. Asian small-claw otters are threatened by rapid habitat destruction, hunting and pollution, and their population trend is decreasing despite being a protected species. They are classified as “vulnerable” because they are likely to become endangered unless the circumstances that are threatening their survival and reproduction improve.

For a limited time, SeaQuest Interactive Aquarium is also offering discounted tickets online, starting at $8.95. To purchase a discounted ticket, visit Fans also are invited to participate in an upcoming naming competition through March 5 by submitting their vote via Facebook at or Instagram at
