11. The Otter

The otter has webbed feet, a waterproof coat and is an expert fisherman, yet it is not entirely wedded to an aquatic life. It hunts rabbits and even birds with gusto and is not averse to a cross country excursion, especially in winter when snow lies around. Few animals are more playful than the otter and it loves to romp in the snow, when it often toboggans head first down the banks. Otters are vagrant in their habits, fishing part of a river, then moving on several miles, next exploring a stream, but eventually working back to their original headquarters.
