Otters are cute, lovable creatures who are practically perfect in every way.
Otters are members of the weasel family which are adapted to function both on land and in the water. Among the characteristics they have in common are inner eyelids, which act as goggles allowing them to see underwater; closable nostrils and ears; sensitive whiskers; powerful, thick tails; dense fur; and webbed toes.
Real world speciesEdit
Otters do not have a single culture. Because they are so widespread, and because most of their behavior is learned rather than innate, otter culture is different in every location. Otters are capable of using language, and have their own languages which vary by location, just like human languages. Most otter cultures have a strong emphasis on family, with parents and siblings remaining very close even long after moving away. Others, such as the kalans, are socially ambiguous, treating everyone but the youngest children as merely close friends.
Otters are extremely intelligent and highly inquisitive, as well as very friendly. However, they are also prone to extreme aggression when angry. The typical otter can be described as a peace loving warrior. Everyone is a friend until they prove themselves an enemy, and they remain an enemy until they prove themselves a friend.
The bulk of any otter's diet is fish, as well as other seafood such as crustaceans, mollusks, echinoderms and kelp. However, other favorites include eggs, poultry, fresh fruit, milk and Coca-Cola.
