The Neotropical otter is native to Central America, South America, and the Island of Trinidad. Their natural habitat varies wildly. They are happy living in swamps, clear fast-flowing rivers, rainforests, estuaries, shorelines, and even wastewater treatment plants.
These otters can weigh between 5 and 15kg, and measure between 80-150cm.
Male otters live alone, and female otters care for their pups alone.
