Fingal

Number of views as of 10th February 2018 = 2450.

Fingal is a North American Otter. I would love to be able to report that I took this shot on a Scottish loch somewhere. Well, that’s almost true. His home is the Scottish Sealife Sanctuary on Loch Creran on the West Coast of Scotland. The sanctuary’s main work is the rescue and repatriation of seal pups, abandoned by their mothers around Scotland’s extensive coastline. There is also a well-stocked aquarium and the Otter sanctuary there. Sadly, Fingal’s sister and companion Sula died last winter, so he’s all alone now (sob), apart from thousands of adoring visitors that is.

Took quite a bit of patience to get this shot as Fingal is quite a lively fellow, running around his enclosure – he can’t keep still for more than a few seconds at a time.

Taken using a Canon EOS 400D.

Date: 20th August 2008.

Fingal was featured by The Scots Are Coming group.
