Otter Trio

This trio of Northern River Otters (Lontra canadensis) was hanging out on shoreline of the Westbay Walkway for a couple of days last week. They seemed quite unconcerned about passersby who stopped to watch them at their fishing. When they had enough of the small fish that were in abundance then they crawled out onto the rocks to scratch and groom themselves and each other, as can be seen in the short video below.

I adore otters. They are so cute. There was an adorable video on Facebook earlier this week of a river otter that plays with a neighbourhood dog every day at the same time. It's a riot.

I saw one recently scampering into the brush out of the Rideau Canal. Good shots!
