I love it! I see them on occasion but they don't stick around very long.

I was cross country skiing in a marsh a few years ago and saw a very odd shape in the show, it was 6 feet long (as long as my ski) about a foot wide then 3 paw prints. This pattern went on for about 1/4 mile.....never 4 paw prints, never 2. I then realized it must be an otter gliding on the snow. Sure enough, I followed it to a small muddy hole in the ice where it disappeared. I would have loved to glide along with him!!

Now this is cool. All I ever see here is muskrats. They're cool and all...but not otter or mink cool.
And they will steal all your bait.
i never seen the otters eat but one year a mink had her babies under a shed at the marina. She would have fish like two times her size . She drag them out the water and right under the shed was cool . She was one good provider I just imagine what a 3 foot otter catches
