  • Southern River Otter : Characteristics

    Lontra Provocax

    A very rare species of freshwater otter from South America. Southern river otters are about one metre long, but have been so little studied that we don't know how much they weigh!

    They have webbed feet and strong claws, are dark brown on top and silvery-white beneath.

    Oh nose

    The nose is diamond shaped, with the bottom corner squared off.
