  1. My six year old says, “The giant otter picture is spectacular.” He is interested in all mammals and wants to be a zoo dentist someday.

  2. Just as a point of curiosity, since I just realised I don’t know — the webbing on the feet of this otter is distinctly pronounced, moreso than I remember from some of the other otters. Do ALL otters have webbed feet, though? Or do some not have webbing, or greatly reduced webbing from this?

  3. @ Luna
    All have webbing, it’s just particularly “seal-like” in Pteronura.
