Eurasian Otter (Lutra lutra)

Only one species of otter lives in Europe, Eurasian otter (Lutra lutra), which once lived along all running and standing freshwaters. Of all 13 otter species that exist in the world, Eurasian otter has the biggest living range. One can find otter in the coniferous forest of the Carpathians, in the Pannonic plains and even on the seasides on the north and in the south of European continent.

Eurasian otter can be distinguished from other species by its distinctive muzzle shaped in the form of an open W. In otter's living space, freshwaters, in our country also live muskrats and somewhere nutrias, both american rodents and therefore non autochthonic. Lately they are joined by European beaver, aquatic rodent, that is reconquering our country from the south, along river Sava and upwards the tributaries. When we aren't sure which aquatic mammal we are observing, we must pay attention to the shape of the tail and animal's behaviour. Rodents are exclusively herbivores, that's why we won't see them chasing the prey.

You've been very lucky to be able to take this shot as they move so swiftly! Great POV, TFS.
