Eurasian Otter

We just learned about the North American River Otter.

Another animal in the same family is the Eurasian Otter, also called the european otter, eurasian river otter, common otter, old world otter, or lutra lutra.

These animals live in parts of Europe, Asia and Africa and are the most common type of otter in the world.
They grow to about 40 centimeters long and weigh about 10 kilograms.

Just like the North American river otter, these animals live in lakes, rivers and ponds.
Unlike a lot of the other otters, these animals usually live alone, except for when mothers are raising baby otters.
