A photo exhibition of sea otters "Pata" born at Kaiyukan in Minato-ku, Osaka, "Selfish, but what? -Pata and keeper, 20-year photo exhibition-" is being held from June 17th.
This event is a photo exhibition that spotlights "Pata", which will celebrate its 20th birthday on June 28th. The phrase that the zookeepers said, "Maybe Pata always thinks like this ..." became the theme of the photo exhibition.
The photos on display are the photographs taken by the zookeepers during their daily breeding work. From the viewing passage, you can enjoy the lively and rich expression of the patter, which you rarely see. Also introduced is a video taken when Pata was born. It seems that you can see the sea otter, the mother of the patter, hugging the baby patter with great care.
