Fun Fact: Otters are actually in my Top 5 list of favorite animals. The otters thick fur enables it to stay warm even in near freezing waters. The otter's five toed webbed feet make then extremely adept swimmers. Their back feet are slightly larger giving then a "flipper" effect. The otter is an amazing fisherman. Consuming fish and crustaceans as well as lizards and other land animals. It is good that it finds food easily because, though small, the otter eats 20% of their body weight daily.
