Small Clawed Asian Otters

Small Clawed Asian Otters

Asian Small-Clawed Otters are the smallest of the 13 species of otter. They have small ears and nostrils which close when they swim under water. They have two layers of fur and a natural body oil that coats the fur forming a waterproof layer. Between the two layers of fur is a pocket of air which keeps the otter warm and dry all year round, even under water.

I saw them juggle a pebble!
