The Male Otter Who Died of Heart Break An Hour After His Buddy’s Death

Daz and Chip, two male otters who lived at the Naturelands Zoo in New Zealand, who had been best friends for fifteen years, died within an hour of each other. Zookeepers suspect heart break, with the ultimate of bromances ending after one had a heart attack, and the other couldn’t bare to see his mate die. [Daily Mail]

      So did they mate with female otters? If they did I’ll buy the “Best Friends” line. But if they just hung out together I’m guessing “Best Friends” might not work.

      I am sorry for the loss of my namesake. I hope he is in otter heaven cracking a feast of clams off his belly!

      Did they have to refer to themselves as “buddies” because they have DADT in cute otterland?
