How was Otis tagged?

Where does he live now?

How did you bring him back to your place from the sea?

Hi:

I'm afraid all my information about Otis comes from WhaleNet, so you'll
probably be able to answer the questions you've asked me as easily as I
could.  Go to:

and

Enjoy the site.  It looks like a great project!

Best,

Joe
