River Otter

The river otter lives life in hyperdrive. A fast metabolism gives it boundless energy, but also requires a lot of fuel. Otters are fast and maneuverable in the water and can dive up to 60ft. in search of prey.

River otters are social and communicate with squeals, chirps, chatters, chuckles and screams.
