Even otters are finding love on the Internet.
It’s becoming more and more common for couples to meet each other through online dating apps, especially during the pandemic. Such services have apparently become so successful at making love connections that even otters are getting set up online.
When one of its male otters named Harris lost his mate, workers at the Cornish Seal Sanctuary in Gweek, England, used a dating app made specifically for otters to find him a new mate, according to a press release from the Sea Life Scarborough Sanctuary. That sanctuary is home to Pumpkin, a female otter who was also recently widowed and ended up matching with Harris.

After it was determined that Harris and Pumpkin would make a good couple, Harris was moved from Cornish to Sea Life in Scarborough. According to the release, it’s best to introduce the male otter to the female otter’s territory to ensure that he properly submits.
