Otter removes koi again Anonymous 01/22/2020 (Wed) 23:05:56 No. 530 [Reply]
Koi tremble in fear as otter makes reappearance in Vancouver Chinese garden
>Nearly a year after a hungry otter began decimating the koi population at Vancouver’s Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Gardens, another animal has returned to finish the job.
>The Vancouver Park Board said Saturday the otter was spotted in the koi pond on Wednesday morning, after the carcasses of three koi were found.
>“To be quite frank, we don’t know what otters are capable of,” he said.

Do sea otters drink salt water?
>>1272 That would be pretty salty.

Otter Culture Anonymous 09/02/2019 (Mon) 19:58:57 No.16 [Reply] [Last]
This thread is dedicated to otter-related media.
Otters deserve a place not only in nature, but also in our culture.
Share and review otter-related books, films, music, drawings, paintings, poetry, etc.

Starting off, here's a nice children's song about an otter.
It's pretty good, and reminds you what otters are all about.

>>1528 >New species of animals are being discovered all the time Not really, and especially not extant living species. Numerous non-animal species (aka bacterium) are discovered yearly, but it's not some kind of common occurrence these days. There are roughly 8.6M eukaryote species known, and this is basically stable year-over-year.

Are there any other otter-related sites/forums/communities that you use? Maybe we can get a good otter links thread going. I've found that otter fans seem to mostly frequent your typical sites like Facebook, Twitter and Reddit. I tried using them a few times but all that seems to go on there is people reposting the same funny otter pictures (not that I'd want to denigrate our brothers in those places). Still, it's interesting how the imageboard format can instantly improve any topical discussion. Anyways, here are some links. The IOSF website aggregates news and other info about otters: https://www.otter.org/Public/News_OtterNews.aspx Watch Sea Otters live (7am-7pm pacific time): https://www.montereybayaquarium.org/animals-and-exhibits/live-web-cams/sea-otter-cam An extensive blog by an otter watcher: https://otters.net/ IUCN Otter Specialist Group websites (lots of interesting info): https://www.otterspecialistgroup.org/ https://weloveotters.com/

>>920 Have you heard of anon.cafe? It's an imageboard about otters.

/otter/ thread #0 Anonymous 04/07/2020 (Tue) 12:08:10 No.975 [Reply] [Last]
So I've noticed that since otters are already a very niche topic, most of the threads on this board are specific to a degree that very few people will participate in them, making /otter/'s activity suffer. There are few threads with more than a handful of replies on here. A solution to this could be to make a general thread, i. e. to throw everything into one b᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎ig conti᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎nuous thread where everything otter-related can be discussed. So let's try that out. Please direct your otterposting into this thread from now on.᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎

Have you ever discovered otter tracks?
River otters have webbed feet with 5 toes and little claws. They almost look like human hands and they are very useful for the otters' hunting. Otters rarely take a break so these paws are always grabbing something or pattering around somewhere.
Their tracks are unique and easily recognisable on the right surfaces, for the European otter it is about 5-7 centimetres long.

Do you guys live in a place close to otters?
>>239
I do, there's proofs of Lutra Lutra in some areas around my city. There's been a lot of work put into making the place habitable for them.

I did go otter surveying over the holidays and discovered these tracks with some spraint. This was right by a river under a bridge. You can see what the otter did here: It climbed out of the water to leave its mark.
I wanna go do it this year again. Hopefully I find something... Maybe I'll even see an otter again
>>450 The soil has been graced by an otter, and a piece of an otter has become the soil.

Otter Stories Meeting an otter is a life-changing experience that can hardly be described in words: explaining what it is like is like trying to explain the beauty of the sunrise to a blind man. And yet, reading through anons recounting their own otter experience can itself be a magical thing, even if it's only a small glimpse into the wonderful world of otters. Therefore I'd like to continue this nice thread here, it's probably the best one we've had on 8/otter/. ITT post stories of your personal otter encounters/achievements, whether wild or captive. Have you... >...seen an otter (in a zoo)? >...seen an otter (in the wild)? >...been close to an otter? >...touched an otter? >...been touched by an otter? >...petted an otter? >...played with an otter? >...fed an otter? >...kissed an otter?

>>1464 Amazing. Otters should normally be more shy of humans. >but never saw the otter again. They never tend to stay in one place for long.
Seen sea otters when visiting my grandmother before, both at the aquarium and in the wild around the wharf out there. Always surprises me how big they can get. Was also at a more local zoo focused on native animal life to the area I live in, and was surprised they had a river otter exhibit, as this state would be one of the last places I'd ever expect them in. Apparently there's a small amount of them living in some hidden river (in that the people running conservation of them don't want them being disturbed by tourists) in the riparian areas. There weren't any actually out for display though. Not sure if it was just a post-lunchtime nap, or if they were off exhibit for some reason.
>>1475 River otters sleep a lot, try visiting them at feeding time next time.
>>1488 Magnificent

These are pretty good, thanks anon.
