Hello friends,

out of all the boards I've seen in my life, this is the only one that makes complete sense to me. I also usually don't post on these, but I make an exception for otters. Very good board.

Protected habitat and a breeding program should make for a good start.

What do their hands feel like?



They feel like wet little hands.

They're the perfect hands for holding hands in a dream.


I miss otters so much. It's been way to long since I saw an otter irl.

Don't know how you can miss otters you've never even met, but I do :/

I hope otters will visit me soon. I will make them feel right at home! All otters have a place in my heart.

Being an otter fan is not for everyone; you must have a certain level of intelligence and perfomance level of the brain; otter fans have heightened logical thinking and analysis skills which allows them to sea otters as the noble creatures that they are.

The soul of the otter fan is a happy soul, for in contrast to the plebeian soul it is nourished by the love of otters. Hence it enjoys a closer connection to God, being ever thankful to the wise Creator for giving us the beautiful gift of otters.

Plebeians are not likely to become otter fans, as they simply do not have the capacity to handle otters in their brains. If you have passed the test and find yourself here, as one of us: Congratulations. It is certainly a great privilege to be here and to be able to love otters this much.

Some real life otters are already quite anthropomorphic.



>I don't get why people are so against furry stuff

The reason is that there are plenty of furry boards, but only one otter board.

We want to keep /otter/ as an otter board, not yet another furry board.

While I do consider myself a furry, I'm actually not the OP of the furry threads. I've been here since March and mostly posted otter photographs and other otter related things.

I do agree that we should keep this an otter board but I thought a furry otter thread every once in a while couldn't hurt, just like we have an otter anime thread, which I also contributed to. Nobody seemed to complain about that.

Otters offer a window into a magical world completely unlike our own.

If you are lucky enough to have been blessed by an otter encounter, please share your mystical mustelid adventures here so others can get a glimmer of the gifts otters have bestowed upon us. How did your otter encounter change your life? What wisdom or new capacity for emotion did you gain from otter? How does otter make you feel?

All personal otter stories welcome here.

And remember:

You are otterly loved!


My first wild otter encounter:

I was 6 years old, visiting a family friend in Cornwall. She lived right on a river bank, with big french windows that opened onto the dock. The other side of the river was dense, wild forest.

One morning, I woke up very early, before anyone else was awake. I crept downstairs quietly so I didn't wake anyone, and I lay down by the windows to watch the river as the day was dawning.

After some time enjoying the peaceful riverside dawn, I noticed a flash of brown bobbing in the water. At first I thought it was a log, but as I watched it moved closer and closer to me. As it approached my bank of the river I realised it was the head of an otter!

The otter bobbed its way through the water all the way to my side, and climbed out of onto the dock just a few feet from where I lay.

I was so excited to be this close to an otter that I almost called out to wake my Mum and our friends, but I didn't want to scare the otter away so I stayed perfectly still and silent. I watched in awe as the otter came towards me on its way along the dock. It walked right past me, just 6 inches from my face on the other side of the glass. I held my breath, hoping it wouldn't notice me and run away.

But the otter carried right on past me, down to where kids had been crabfishing from the dock the previous day. I guess they'd left some crabs in a bucket maybe, because otter seemed to find itself some tasty, crunchy snacks. After satisfying its appetite, or maybe exhausting the free food supply, otter came back along the dock, this time passing even closer, swishing its sleek fur against the glass. Then splash into the water, and the glossy brown head dipping away from me in the clear dawn light. Back towards those mysterious, wild woods, where I lost sight of it.

I've never forgotten the window into wonder that otter gave me. The spaciousness and clarity of the morning. The rhythm of life splashing onward in its beautiful, endless way. The harmony of all that is. The silent symphony of bliss that is our planet, at peace.


Unfortunately I haven't seen otters in the wild yet, but I sure hope to one day. Usually I see Asian small clawed otters in zoos. I spend most of my time there when I visit zoos. If there was a zoo with only otters I would definitely visit it. The more otters the better.

I have seen weasels in the wild though. Those times were pretty marvelous too. I've seen them on the path between my home town and my work place. The first time I saw two weasels fighting with each other. They didn't seem to notice me until I came quite close and subsequently they ran off to the bushes. I stopped and watched them for a while. They were standing straight up and looked at me. The second time I saw a weasel, it was dark and the weasel crossed my path with a prey in its mouth.

This September I'm going to Hokkaido and I really hope to see wild sea otters near the shore. I'm also thinking of spending a weekend in Flevoland since I believe there are wild otters there.



>The first time I saw two weasels fighting with each other.

A weasel battle! Epic!

My cat once had a stand off with a weasel over a mouse. It was quite the drawn-out strategy game. Can't quite remember who won, but the mouse DEFINITELY lost. Very fun to watch 2 predators trying their wits against each other.

Time to learn Japanese




Reminder that Japan wiped out all their native otters, and they allow people to keep illegally trafficked otters as pets.

Japan is hostile to otters.

Otters have been spotted in Japan in recent years but only the sightings on one small island have been confirmed.


Now that Sarazanmai has finished and Kawauso Labo may also end soon, I was wondering if there are any other otter anime coming up. At least we still have Gegege no Kitaro but Kawauso doesn't appear as often in it as in the 2007 version. Oh and there is still Bonobono but strangely it hasn't been subtitled for a while.

That is unacceptable. We need more posters to come here and discuss otters.

What do you think the future will hold for the otter? Short-term and long term?

Should Man go extinct, I believe they'll be able to replace us.

They can stand upright, have forward-facing eyes, and are able to use tools.

Some of them (smooth-coated, giant etc) live and hunt in groups where they're able to communicate and coordinate with each other.

Perhaps they'll go through the same kind of development that primates did when they became humans. Perhaps they'll develop better communication skills, maybe even a sort of language comparable to that of dolphins. Maybe they'll make more complicated tools, maybe even discover fire. I'd like to believe that could happen.

Of course, that's assuming we don't kill them all before that happens.

This ugly bastard doesn't look much like an otter.



Whale ancestors were more like furry crocodiles.

Whale ancestor thread?


Whale whale whale, what do we have here?



Nope, there are few creatures that compare to the beauty of the otter.

But this beast was still pretty long, and it lived the otter lifestyle. So that's something
