This otterly-endearing River Otter was recently seen on Indigo Trail.
Fun facts: River otters communicate with whistles, yelps, growls, and screams, as well as touch and body posture. They also scent mark using glands near the base of their tails that produce a strong, musky odor. Adults generally give birth to between one – three pups, which are blind and helpless when born, but learn how to swim after about two months.
