Nutria de Río Norteamericana (Lontra canadensis)




Julio 2018


We had a campsite in Elkmont in GRSMNP on the river side in section G. On Thursday, July 26th we saw three otters, a mother and two little ones in the water. On Friday, July 28th, we spotted another otter, possibly the same adult from the day before, and I was able to grab my camera in time to snag a pretty good photo. We observed the otter eating what appeared to be crawfish on a rock and sometimes simply sticking its head out of the water to chomp on its prey instead of rolling over onto its back.
