North American River Otter

Lontra canadensis


We had the wonderful experience of meeting these Otters at a sanctuary in Devon. The trip was during a small family trip to the River Dart and I had hoped to photograph some name Otters wild on the river. These Otters are quite the performer, they were more than happy to be photographed and lived showing off!


North America including Canada. Can be found in clean rivers

Nice portrait. You could add this to the Captive Animals mission.

I love them, could spend hours watching them. Mind you, I can do that with most animals!

Otters always remind me of The Wind in the Willows!
