The North American river otter (Lontra canadensis ), also known as the northern river otter and river otter, is a semiaquatic mammal that only lives on the North American continent, along its waterways and coasts. An adult North American river otter can weigh between 5.0 and 14 kg (11.0 and 30.9 lb). The river otter is protected and insulated by a thick, water-repellent coat of fur.
North American river otters are the only river otter that is found north of Mexico. This animal’s lovely waterproof pelt, which allows it to regulate its temperature, in the 1700s-1800s, a regular part of French fur trade, has meant this animal has been hunted for hundreds of years. Its fur ranges in color from white and gray to brown and black.
The North American otter inhabits much of the United States and Canada, from the Pacific to the Atlantic Coast, from the Gulf of Mexico to northern Alaska. Being aquatic in nature, this species is confined to places that have permanent water. This includes a wide range of habitats, from rivers, streams and creeks, to coastal waters, lakes and swamps.
- North American otters are playful animals, and indulge in water play, mud/snow sliding, and burrowing through snow. Many "play" activities serve a purpose, such as strengthening social bonds, practicing hunting techniques, and scent marking.
- These animals have boundless energy due to their very high metabolism. This means that they have to eat a lot during the day.
- These otters are very good swimmers and divers, and are able to stay underwater as long as 8 minutes.
- Otters have the thickest fur of any mammal, having as many as 850,000 hairs per square inch.
- Mothers will catch and release prey to teach their young how to forage and to catch food items.
- North American otters are able to dive as deep as 60 feet.
- Northern American otters are able to close their nostrils in order to keep water out when diving for a long time.
