The Asian small-clawed otter dwells in the freshwater wetlands and mangrove swamps of Southeast Asia, southern India, southern China and the Philippines. It is the smallest otter in the world and is known for its energetic nature. This species spends more time on land than any other otter and has been observed sliding on mud banks and chasing one another through the water.
The Asian small-clawed otter is a carnivore and feeds on mollusks, fish and frogs, as well as crabs and other crustaceans. It captures its prey with its front paws not its mouth, making it unique among all otter species
You can enjoy watching these otters scamper about in the River Scout gallery.
