“HAVE YOU EVER FLOATED IN THE RIVER HOLDING HANDS WITH A FEMALE OTTER AND FARTED AND BEEN ALL LIKE “THAT WAS THE DOG” AND SHE WAS LIKE “THERE AIN’T ANY DOGS HERE. THIS IS THE MIDDLE OF THE RIVER” AND THEN YOU’VE BEEN LIKE “UHH, THAT WAS MARSH GAS.” HATE IT WHEN THAT HAPPENS TO ME… *PFFFFFFFFT* UH, THAT WAS THE DOG…”
Grown-up otters aren’t the most mature of stand-up comedians.
Animal of the Week!
This week’s animal is the North American River Otter. This otter, weighing anywhere from 11 to 31 pounds, is found mostly in Northwestern and Eastern United States, as well as in the majority of Canada and Alaska. These animals eat mostly fish, but they also have been known to eat amphibians, turtles, and crayfish. Besides being extremely adorable, river otters are also fascinating. We think of them as living in rivers, due to the name, but river otters also live in estuaries, coastal shorelines, lakes, and wetlands. Their body shape perfectly streamlines them for swimming, but reduces agility when they’re on land. River otters also are well-known for playing; they often play by chasing and wrestling, and this play helps them learn survival skills.
