Project 40: Otter

River otters are semiaquatic mammals common in North American waterways. They have webbed feet, long bodies (35 to 42 inches [89 to 107cm]) and long tails that are thick at the base, tapering to a point. The animals are versatile in the water and on land. They live in burrows close to the water’s edge in rivers, lakes, swamps, coastal shorelines or estuaries.
