Giant River Otter Cleaning her Fur

Giant River Otter Cleaning her Fur

Much time is spent in grooming the fur coat that protects them. Although I tried, it was difficult to capture a single otter, or for that matter an "otter pile". I either got a mess or or a piece, as you see here, but it does make the point that these creatures are tightly bound to each other in a supportive and familial group.
