  1. Well isn’t this just splendid? It sure is! River otters are just so darn cute. And they hold hands! Just like people do. Wouldn’t it be nice if we were more like river otters though? I think so.

  2. The link lists several animals that are “monogamous for life”, including bald eagles. There is a documented nest of polygamous eagles at the same nest site over multiple years. One female lost her first mate, then had two attending males over multiple breeding seasons and all three came back the following year.

    Often times there is confusion in this type of article about “mating for life” vs partners over multiple years. As a human its really cool to see animals stay together through multiple breeding seasons, it mirrors our family structure. But in reality many animals, just like us, are capable of finding another mate if things unfortunately don’t work out.

    Personally that seems much better than imagining an eagle alone for the rest of their life, no matter what, if they lose their mate. Forever alone.
