Otters are surprisingly cute and funny creatures, it is worth getting to know them better.
They live in those ponds where there is a lot of fish - their main food. They are not much into wide rivers with a rapid current and stony bottoms. They also do not commit themselves to specific ponds for more than a reasonable amount of time: once they consume larger fish and only the small ones remain, they would go in search of a new home.
Otters are wonderful swimmers and divers. They can remain underwater for about 4 minutes, and if they feel danger, they can stay longer. After such a long time in the water, the otter gets in its element: it emerges, replenishes air its reserves and plunges into the water again in search of food. They can move on land without problems: a little bit hunched perhaps, usually moving by short jumps but fast enough, wriggling like a snake.
Otters have the reputation of cute frisky animals. The most favorite entertainment for otter pups is to roll down the slope into the water. In its natural habitat, otters get to live 3-5 years, if not caught by man (for their fur) or die from a disease, or if they live in captivity, for example, zoos or at home as pets they can even live for 8-15 years.
Otters are very friendly and peaceful in nature, so they are often kept as pets. The tamed otter is very funny, affectionate and obedient little critter. It quickly gets used to their owner, enjoys playing with them, easily gives in to training and quickly becomes a universal favorite for every family member.
