Real Taxidermy Otter Skull. Otters are playful animals and appear to engage in various behaviors for sheer enjoyment, such as making water slides and then sliding on them into the water. They may also find and play with small stones. Different species vary in their social structure, with some being largely solitary, while others live in groups – in a few species these groups may be fairly large.
For most otters, fish is the staple of their diet. Otters are active hunters, chasing prey in the water or searching the beds of rivers, lakes or the seas. Most species live beside water, but river otters usually enter it only to hunt or travel, otherwise spending much of their time on land to avoid their fur becoming waterlogged. Sea otters are considerably more aquatic and live in the ocean for most of their lives.
Otter is a common name for a carnivorous mammal in the subfamily Lutrinae. The word otter derives from the Old English word otor or oter which gave rise to the English word water. Otters have long, slim bodies and relatively short limbs with webbed paws.
