[River Otters]

The River Otters are found throughout Alaska, Canada and the northern United States, and are hence named the North American River Otter. They are slightly larger than our native European otter and are probably the most numerous Otter species in the wild.

They live in a variety of habitats, but spend most of their time in or near streams, rivers, lakes and coastal marshes. Their diet is similar to European Otters, eating mainly fish, amphibians and crustaceans.
