The North American River Otter!


You might remember seeing an ottdurr way back in Episode 46 of Science... sort of, but this was likely the outcome of a life of captivity - their wild brethren aren't so derp.







You can learn about North American River Otter characteristics on Otternet, get some further details at OtterSpotter, and find lots of images in the Arkive.

there was one episode of SSO where we were passing this back and forth as we recorded and it nearly ruined everything.
Titanium Physicists has a pro-bee-analogy agenda. That's certainly no secret.

Which episode was that?
I tweet, I tumbl, I read, I drink, and I write.

Not necessarily in that order, though.
