North American River Otter

Sorry, but all I can think about when looking at this guy is…. President Teddy Roosevelt. Chin sticking out and big ole mustache.

They almost look like a seal when they swim, twisting and flying under water.

They do live in New England, however I have never seen one in the wild. These shots were taken at Beardsley Park in Connecticut. They have a fairly large enclosed pond for a pair.
