There is something magically wonderful in seeing two animals in love.. Otters are fascinating to watch, they are playful, skillful and exceptionally cute.
I will add some blurb about these type (European).. But firstly can I please say thank you so much for all of the comments & faves on my Owl shot.. I will address all questions on there within the next few days. Right now I have company at my house so I don't have chance to comment etc, but I will catch back up soon xxx
The shot is sooc.
This species (Lutra lutra) inhabits Europe, and its range also extends across most of Asia and parts of North Africa; it is also called the Eurasian otter. In the British Isles, they occurred commonly as recently as the 1950s, but became rare in many areas due to the use of chlorinated hydrocarbon pesticides and as a result of habitat loss and water pollution (they remained relatively common in parts of Scotland and Ireland). Population levels reached a low point in the 1980s, but are now recovering strongly. The UK Biodiversity Action Plan envisages the re-establishment of otters by 2010 in all the UK rivers and coastal areas they inhabited in 1960. Roadkill deaths have become one of the significant threats to the success of their re-establishment.
