North American river otters are the most abundant otter species. They have playful, sociable personalities. As semi-aquatic mammals, they can thrive in any water habitat-cold, warm, or high-elevation areas-as long as the habitat provides adequate food.
On February 10, a male juvenile river otter was admitted after being found alone on the side of the road. He presented as a healthy orphan and has been recieving supportive care.
