Otter Portrait

North American River Otter. View Large On Black The North American River Otter is the most numerous of all the otter species. They range throughout Canada and the United States, avoiding the arid areas of Texas, Nevada, Arizona, and California. Another location they can be found is in the delta areas of the Rio Grande and Colorado River in Mexico. They like to live within about one hundred meters of rivers, lakes, and streams. Also like to live in coastal marine habitats including swamps and marshes. They are able to tolerate a wide variety of climates and environments. River otters can be found where there is a permanent supply of food. If an area becomes polluted, the river otter will leave as it's very sensitive to pollution. IMGC_1709
