Otters Arrive with Tavie the Dolphin Alpha Adventure

Click here for the full Jamaa Journal!
Click here for all the current clearance items!

Hey jammers! This is snowy, and I'm back from being my silly sick version of myself. I like this version much better... Just silly. ^-^ ANYwho, update time! First things first, our new item of the day...
A Liza Portrait, sold in Jam Mart Clothing. Just in case you don't see her face around Jamaa enough. I swear, I see her floating head everywhere... I'm not crazy!!! Maybe just a little bit. But now, let's turn over to the main feature of this lovely update, the OTTERS!

 Though they are in the Diamond Shop, they are quite cute! The classic exaggerated features that we so love on Animal Jam.
They have quite the collection of moves too! I did a little video about the update which I will embed below (when I get around to editing it, I do have my summer job thingy, my goodness, so busy!).

(cuuuuue video)

And look at the lovely little exhibit this fella gets!
Over in the Chamber of Knowledge is the lovely Sea Otter Minibook. And guess what? If you click all the little badges...
Gem prize! Woot woot. :) Over in the Conservation Museum we have the custom new animal exhibit, with the adorable cartoon and some beautiful pictures. Be sure to go check them out when you can!
With the update has also come the hard mode to the underwater adventure "Turning the Tide" in which you help Tavie, the dolphin alpha.
And with the new exploration of the adventure comes a new prize set of Rare Lionfish Armor. Be sure to send a picture to spiritjammer@gmail.com if you win some! But even cooler...
The first little spotlight on our first official underwater alpha! Isn't she adorable? She may be named after Octavia (Octavia Minor or Octavia the Younger), sister of the first Roman Emperor. Octavia was known for her nobility, loyalty, and humanity (dolphinity?). Ooorrrr... She was named after Octavia da pony. Cello player. PONIES. I like that theory...
 We have the last day for Lionfish Armor in Bahari Bargains, and the brand new Volcanoes 101 video over in the Sarepia Theatre. Neat having new videos every day, huh? And over in the Sol Arcade...
Everyjammer loves a good game sale. Be sure to get some arcade games while they're hot, being end of summer vacation and all. Sad thing that. Makes very sad me. Me very sad. Last thingy of the day...
A new "Trade Requested" table! I think it provides a nice little layout. Next I think there should be an actual trading room, with trading tables, and you can negotiate for items like real trading. It'd be fun! Yes?
Happy jamming!

  1. I like the otters, they are just very small so all the big Arctic Wolves can cover them easily. :C Oh well, off to the water adventure!

    UGHHHHHHHHHHHH!!

    I feel we should protest to AJ to make otters either
    (-) Nonmember
    (-) Cheaper
    (-) Out if the diamondshop

    Wait, Liza's portrait it a clothing item O.o Really? That's weird.
    I really don't like the lionfish armor leaving, it's my favorite underwater item XD
    Oh well, this update is awesome, another great job!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Yep.... Although if they did become gem animals, AJHQ should refund the 10 diamonds, and the player may, or may not lose 1000 gems.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Whee! I like Snowy.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hey jammers!

  34. Of course otters are member aj is being kinda selfish to nm's like i really wanted a otter >:( they could at least turn a member animal nm like a lion or something

    ReplyDelete
  35. I think if AJ turned giraffes or foxes nm, that would be quite nice. I renewed my membership a few days ago.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I don't have enough diamonds... (0)

    ReplyDelete
  37. UGH WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY ARE THEY DIAMONDSSSSSSS

    ReplyDelete
  38. I WONT GET A DIAMOND CARD FOR 2 WEEKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. They are so cute. They're worth the buy. I am going to get one now.
    Also, everyone, AJHQ needs money. If they made all animals nonmember and for gems, then AJ will soon be bankrupt and then it will be gone. And noone wants that to happen, right?

    ReplyDelete
  40. I know what's better then otters :D

    ReplyDelete
  41. ALEJANDROOOOOOO.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I IZ MADD I HASH TO WAIT 10 WEEKS TO GETZ OTTER

    ReplyDelete
  43. AJHQ has made the otter for members because members pay real money & it's AJHQ's way saying thank you. With your membership funds AJHQ can help animals in need! One of the main reasons why AJHQ made the otters for Diamonds is because you also pay real money for Diamonds, and if there's not enough Diamond items nobody will buy Diamonds! If there's not enough member only stuff, nobody will become a member so Animal Jam would close because they are a company and they need money.


    I hope that explains things.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Your lucky you even get a member card.... I have to wait ten weeks.. Just 2 days ago I spent all my diamonds on a eagle.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Hey guys! I was kinda mad that the otters were for TEN diamonds... diamonds are hard to come by, and its not any easier for non members either. .... but I love AJHQ for making an alpha spotlight for Tavie.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I think Gryphons and dragons are better.

    ReplyDelete
  47. We have the same problem! 2 days ago I spent all my diamonds on an eagle....

    ReplyDelete
  48. I don't like otters so I don't care :P

    ReplyDelete
  49. I AM SO EXCITED! BEST UPDATES EVER! :D
