My wife and I are on a mission to visit all the oversized local landmarks throughout Minnesota. This blog chronicles those visits and covers other related topics.

World's Largest Otter

July 4th, 2006 - Fergus Falls, MN

World's Largest Otter

After seeing Big Ole in Alexandria, we had one more stop before we hit the lake. That was Adams Park in Fergus Falls to see the World's Largest Otter. The otter is 40 feet long and was built to honor Ottertail County, where Fergus Falls is the county seat. The otter is also the high school mascot.


Tip: When visiting the World's Largest Otter, keep an eye out for roaming gangs of geese. I don't think they will rob you, but they're not afraid to put up a fight. We barely got out alive.

This 40 foot otter was built by Tom Willett's welding class at Fergus Falls High School in 1973. It was a fun project and the largest project ever made there.
