High quality indigenous creature figure- Perfect for small world play.

An otter with swirling tale and inquisitive head up, no doubt checking for danger.

Fun Facts:

Clever creatures, they'll use rocks to crack open the clams. They carry rocks and store food in the loose skin under their armpits - who needs carrier bags!

Unlike most marine mammals, they don't have a layer of blubber. But, they do have the thickest fur of all animals.

Baby otters are called pups. Newborn pups need lots of attention, and will stay close to their mum's until they've developed enough skills to go it alone - usually at 6 months.

An otter pup's fur is too dense for it to swim underwater. So, their mother leaves them floating while she searches for food, until their adult fur grows in.

Don't challenge an otter to a holding-your-breath competition! Sea otters can stay underwater for 5 minutes, and river otters can hold their breath for even longer - 8 minutes!

Otters like to stick together, so when they sleep they will wrap themselves in seaweed and float together in a group. A group of resting otters is called a raft. We wouldn't go drifting away on one of these rafts, however! Otters have a nasty bite!

Rachel’s Notes:

Images of these amazing creatures and antics they get up to are a priceless talking point – as is a lovely small world tray with some of our otters, fish pebbles, green foliage and real water!
