North American River Otter

Lontra canadensis


River otters at Clearwater Marine Aquarium in Florida


In addition to being incredibly smart, otters are also marine mammals, just like dolphins! In fact, what makes them special is that they're the only marine mammals to have fur instead of blubber.
