Otters Are One Of The Cutest Animals, Here Are 148 Pics To Prove It


Otters have earned the reputation of being one of the most adorable animals on the internet, and deservingly so. Even though otters are predators in the wild, they possess a natural talent for striking some of the cutest, funniest, and most photogenic poses for the camera.


There are quite a number of various otter types, with European otters, sea otters, and river otters probably being the most well-known ones. Otters are frolic by nature and like to play with their young ones in the water. Baby otters, who are called pups by the way, learn to swim when they are around two months old. It is always lots of fun watching them play with each other. 


Otter fur helps them stay warm and dry underwater, and even contributes to their ability to float. Unfortunately, it is also considered highly valuable among people, and that’s why otters have been hunted for many centuries, leading to some species being in danger of extinction. 


You have probably seen many photos of sea otters holding hands while sleeping. Not only does this look sweet, but it is also a means of survival. Otters hold hands and entangle themselves in seaweed to make sure they don’t drift away from the group in their sleep. 


We have collected some of the best pictures of cute otters on the internet that are sure to bring a smile on your face and make you go “Aww, look at this little cutie!” Which one is your favorite?

#38 Most Recently An Otter Cub Was Brought To Us


He was found circling in a pond, and after a quick health check was swiftly returned to see if mum would come back for him. Unfortunately, she had long gone, so came into our care for a few days before being taken to UK Otter Trust, where he was paired with another otter similar in size and is due for release in the next couple of weeks!! The Eurasian otter is found all across the UK. Sadly, they are classified as Near Threatened due to the pollution of our rivers, habitat destruction, and fishing. Otters can get caught in fishing nets or lines, which causes restriction injuries or can even drown them. Please dispose of your fishing equipment responsibly, you can refer to the Angling Trusts & RSPCA's guidance on correct disposal methods, this will not only help otters but all marine life affected by this potentially lethal litter. Otters are actually a fantastic sign a river is healthy and has plenty of fish stocks! So protecting them and their habitat will have a positive impact on the entire food chain, including us!! If you find an otter cub alone, do not approach (unless injured), monitor from a distance and if mum does not return, you can ring the UK Otter Trust directly or contact us for further guidance and advice.
