I was at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma when I photographed this River Otter Pup In Duckweed.
Although they are sometimes referred to as “River Otters,” North American River Otters can be found in a wide range of freshwater and coastal marine aquatic habitats, such as lakes, rivers, inland wetlands, coastal shorelines, marshes, and estuaries.
It is capable of withstanding a wide range of temperatures and altitudes.
The primary needs of a North American River Otter are a consistent food source and simple access to a body of water.
It will, however, vanish from polluted locations since it is susceptible to pollution.
