Learn More About River Otters
Who doesn’t love a river otter? Luckily for us, river otters are making a splash across the Chesapeake Bay watershed and occupying freshwater tributaries like the Rappahannock River! Often, you must get up early or stay up late to catch one playing. With some luck and great timing, we hope you see one – it’s truly otter-ly amazing!
“If you haven’t ever watched an otter play, add it to your bucket list. Otters are intelligent, playful creatures by nature. Twirling through the water, rolling around in the snow, and dancing while they poop (yes, that’s true) are all part of what makes watching otters almost mesmerizing. These fascinating critters really are unique watershed residents.”
