Their are several collective nouns for a group of River Otters.A romp,a family,a bevy & a raft!
On another note,I went to check out my favourite salmon stream today! Unfortunately I didn’t find a single salmon in the river system.I couldn’t even see any staging out front! When they stage out front you can usually see & hear them splashing about.Didn’t see or hear anything.I also didn’t see any bears cruising.
So it appears the party hasn’t started yet!
I did a “Life” ceremony for my furry friend. I wished it well on it’s journey & said goodbye.
I visited the Daredevil & Delilah when I passed through Tsapee Narrows.As I was leaving,I noticed movement on their nest island! Turns out it was a River Otter rolling around spreading it’s scent about. These guys spook real easy,so I made sure not to move when It was watching me! Looked like a male?
I caught this River Otter scenting a rope. If Otters smell another animals scent (namely us) they spray & it’s stinky! They have a scent musk gland & use it liberally!
