Forget-Me-Notter Otter Painting!

More than just a cute face, our otters are otterly talented! Baxter, one of three North American river otters at Aquarium of the Bay, has painted a one-of-a-kind otter painting titled “Forget-Me-Notter.” This custom otter painting is up for grabs at our gala. Priceless? We think so.

Thank you to our donors: Baxter (the amazing river otter at Aquarium of the Bay)
