River Otter Lutra canadensis River Otter Tracks Click here for the River Otter Photo Gallery and videos Natural History of River Otters River otters are playful members of the weasel family who love to frolic in the water. They are common in rivers and are a joy to watch. Otters can remain submerged for several minutes. They have valved ears and noses to keep water out. The fur is warm and thick. Since they spend a significant amount of time in the water, their tracks aren't often found. The best places to look for tracks are muddy river banks. They have five toes on the front feet and five toes on the hind feet. Their toes are partially webbed, which helps them swim. Tracks in mud sometimes show this webbing. The claw marks are so close to the toes, they give the toes a characteristic pointed appearance. Otters are well-known for their intelligence and their playful antics. They are excellent fishers, but also will eat small mammals, fish, shellfish, snakes, turtles, birds, eggs, amphibians, and lampreys. They feed primarily on amphibians and will range up to five miles up and down-river each day while hunting. The tail drag is sometimes visible in an otter trail. Often, their prints are found in groups of four.

  • The Life of an Otter
    Otters live in water, in dens or nests. In winter, when an otter's den or nest freezes over, the otter will look for a new river to live in. Otters like to splash, wrestle, and play in the shallow parts of the river. Otters hunt in water and on land, but they spend most of the rest of their time in the water. Otters are fierce hunters. Otters are nocturnal animals, so they always hunt at night. Females and males mate in the summer and work hard to teach their babies. Otters can stay under water for up to six minutes by closing their nostrils.
    Eating Habits
    From the water, otters eat squid, mussels, sea worms, octopi, shellfish, frogs, turtles, and small fish. From land, they eat small birds, insects, eggs, snails, snakes, rabbits, muskrats, and other small mammals.

    River Otters. o Background The river otter, Lutra canadensis, is anelusive, aquatic mammal which belongs to the mustelid, or weasel
    River Otters o Background: The river otter, Lutra canadensis, is an elusive, aquatic mammal which belongs to the mustelid, or weasel, family and is closely related to the sea otter, mink, badger and the wolverine. o Characteristics: A mature otter weighs 10 to 25 pounds and is 30 to 40 inches in length, not counting a 12- to 15-inch tail. Females are slightly smaller. Otters den on the edges of lakes, rivers or streams. Dens may be excavations under tree roots or rock piles; abandoned beaver, muskrat or woodchuck burrows; or unused beaver lodges. Dens typically have an underwater entrance and a living space above water level. o Life cycle: Otters mature by 2 years of age. They mate between January and May, and two or three blind, toothless pups, weighing 4 to 5 ounces, are born about two months later. An otter's lifespan is 10 to 20 years. o Habitat: Otters require clean water that supports fish and other aquatic life. The bulk of their diet consists mainly crayfish, and fish like suckers and minnows.

    10. River Otters
    River otters have a long streamlined body with long, dense fur that provideswarmth, insulation and buoyancy for this member of the weasel family. Otter.htm
    The river otter (Lutra canadensis), found in all major waterways of the United States and Canada, is native to Nebraska and was commonly reported in journals of early explorers of this area. River otters have a long streamlined body with long, dense fur that provides warmth, insulation and buoyancy for this member of the weasel family. Scientific Name: Lutra canadensis Adult Length: 3 to 4 feet in length Adult Weight: Between 1 1 and 23 pounds Habitat: Freshwater rivers and streams Breeding: Breeding occurs in March or April and litters of two to three are common. Typical Foods: Fish make up the greatest portion of the otter's diet. Crayfish are also an important food when available. Other foods include amphibians, insects, mammals and birds. Lifespan: In the wild they live less than 10 years; in captivity they live 10 - 15 years up to 20 years. They have five toes on the front and hind feet. Their toes are partially webbed, which helps them swim. Tracks in mud sometimes show this webbing. The claw marks are so close to the toes, they give the toes a characteristic pointed appearance. Interesting River Otter Facts River otters spend half of their lives sleeping, it takes a lot of rest for the river—or land—otter to protect its reputation for playfulness and activity.

    ORDER: Carnivora
    FAMILY: Mustelidae
    GENUS: Lutra
    SPECIES: canadensis
    Long, slender, sleek body, weighing approximately 20 pounds (9 kg) and about two and a half feet (76 cm) long. Head is small and round, with small eyes and ears; prominent whiskers. Legs short, but powerful; all four feet webbed. Tail long and slightly tapered toward the tip with musk-producing glands underneath. The short dense fur is dark brown. Chin and stomach are reddish yellow, tinged with gray. Females are a third smaller than males.
    All of the United States and Canada except the tundra and parts of the arid southwestern United States. Allied species occur in Mexico, Central and South America, as well as Eurasia. Found in streams, rivers, lakes, estuaries, and salt- and freshwater marshes.
    III. DIET:
    Fish, crayfish, frogs, turtles, and aquatic invertebrates, plus an occasional bird, rodent or rabbit. Because otters prey most easily on fish that are slow and lethargic, much of the diet consists of "rough" fish like carp, suckers, catfish, and sculpins. Zoo diet: fish or horsemeat with vegetables. Feline diet with fish three times a week and vitamin E twice a week.

    Otternet was formed to help educate people on otters providing a wealth of facts not found anywhere else on the web. It is the official otternet. North American river otters once lived throughout North America.





    Species Profile: The North American River Otter
    Lutra canadensis
    The North American River Otter is problably the most numerous otter species. They exhibit delayed implantation with breeding in March-April and birth in late winter/early spring. Fossils of North American River Otters have dated back to the Pleistocene period and archeological remains have been uncovered from 200 B.C. to the mid-1400s.
    North American River Otters once lived throughout North America. Native Americans hunted otters largely for their dense fur which allowed them to keep warm. When European settlers arrived and started developing the land (cutting down forests) and using farm pesticides and fertilizers, the otter habitat became threatening. By the early 1980s, eleven states reported no otter population and thirteen other states reported scarce numbers. As a result, numerous reintroduction programs were established to repopulate many of these areas. By late 1990s, many of these programs had successes with a dramatic improvement in returning otters to their original range.
    Next: The Marine Otter Galleries Bottom Size From a medium size to a large size. The head and body are 660 to 1070mm long. The tail is 315 to 460mm long. The total length then is 1000 to 1530mm.

    River otter (Lutra canadensis The River Otter! What an interesting animal. No wonder they are the center of so much attention. Otters were largely absent from a big part of mid-America by the 1900s, due to more than 200 years of unregulated harvest and habitat changes. Thanks to a partnership between trappers and wildlife managers, we can once again kiss these babies hello, because we are in the middle of an unbelievable river otter comeback! Nearly 4,000 healthy otters have been trapped and moved to new homes in 18 states in one of the most successful predator restoration programs ever.

      Physical Characteristics
      Mass: 3 to 14 kg. Body length= 66-107cm. Tail length= 32-46cm. River otters are long, streamlined animals with a thick tapered tail and short legs. They have a wide, rounded head, small ears, and nostrils that can be closed underwater. They also have long, thick whiskers. They are dark brown to almost black above and a lighter color ventrally. The throat and cheeks are usually a golden. The feet have claws and are completely webbed. Natural History
