The otter is an animal in the Mustelidae family.

In ACGN works, otters/sea otters and otter-/sea otter-related things appear sometimes.



The term "otter" is used to refer to animals in the Lutrinae subfamily of the Mustelidae family (among them, the Enhydra genus, most known specifically as sea otters).

Otters tend to live in freshwater areas such as rivers and lakes (sea otters live in the North Pacific Sea), they move around in the water and on land.

Otters have short limbs, their body is slender. Most species have webbing between their toes, they are good swimmers, their toenails are mostly hooked. While on water, they also close their nostrils and ear holes.

Otters are widespread on all continents except Antarctica and Oceania, they mostly feed on small animals such as frogs, fish, shrimps, crabs and other crustaceans.
