It's ottercine again, yay! I had a really busy day today, checked the calendar, and saw that we get to hang out tomorrow. That'll be nice :)

I found a few extra things. The first one isn't otter only, and I think we've watched something on Singapore before but i thought it wouldn't hurt as an option. The second is a longer, more academic piece, it looks like the kind of thing that would be presented at the otter congress. I love stuff like that, but I understand it wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea. The third is not about otters, its about beavers, but they are in a river called otter and we like beavers too, so I thought I'd link it.

We all have a story of how we started to love otters, right?
About three years ago I saw a pair of Asian small clawed otters getting fed at a local wldlife park, I didn't really know what otters were before that and certainly had never seen any (except in anime and a few pictures). As I saw them running around and squeaking, I already had a sense that this was the animal. Later I found out they're not only cute and funny, but actually endangered and very important for the ecosystem. So logically, I had to devote myself to this new love and become their active supporter.
What are you guys' stories? Have you had wondrous enlightening experiences? Or have you just always loved otters?

Some sweet comments here ^^

I into otters as a kid after having a dream about the otters from Urchin of Mistmantle. I got curious about otters and it just snowballed from there. When I learned about their curiosity and intelligence I KNEW these were my favourite animals, and also they're stinkin' cute ^^

Otters are not very sexually dimorphic at all. The males look almost identical to the females... apart from that. How can you tell if an otter is a boy or a girl by looking at it? I really want to acquire this skill.

>> No.3900  

By the way, do you also usually call otters "he" by default, until you know? I don't want to call them 'it'. Maybe they should be called otter.

>> No.3902  

I can't really tell the difference, but I struggle with the captcha so I'm not a good example :hiding:

I usually go with singular they when I don't know. I know some people don't like singular they, but "you" is also a plural pronoun that is used in singular form and I think if I insisted people use "thou", the singular version, they'd pop a gasket so it all seems kindof silly to me.

>> No.3927  

Yeah from my experience it's hard to tell between the genders, atleast for me. I suppose the females a bit smaller, but otherwise they seem pretty much the same. I think the males have a bit rougher facial features and broader muzzles, and while I like to believe I can see the difference I doubt I would pass any test! The more obvious clues are ofc the males having their scrotum and the females their teats. Also, female sea otters can sometimes be seen with a scratch on their nose after mating.

Animals have to be smart to be able to do stupid things. Only intelligent animals can even come up with stupid things to do. That's why otters, raccoons, etc. are so funny, because they're intelligent. Stupid animals can only sleep, eat and do normal things which is why they're less funny. That's my theory at least. What do you think?

>What do you think?

Agreed 100% The inquisitiveness of otters is what drives them into so many "stupid" situations, whereas simpler animals just don't have the same curiosity about the world. A fish, for instance, is going to live its simple fish life and not be overly curious about changes in their environment past how it immediately relates to their capacity to find food or be safe from predators. On the other hand, when an otter notices that his environment has changed somehow, he immediately jumps to investigating it, even if it doesn't at all impact his ability to hunt or stay safe. And this is why fish are otter fuel, and otters are not fish fuel.

>> No.3926  

^This! Otters are curious and thus mischievous. They live in complex habitats with a lot of varied food sources where they benefit from being curious. Sometimes I suppose their curiosty gets the best of them lol

So neat to see otter in media, I just wish there were more of them!

Since otters walk on all fours, would an otter doing curls be considered arm day or leg day?

Otters' forelimbs are sometimes legs and sometimes arms
In this picture he's using them as arms so I'd call it arm day

This last Friday was a good one, and I certainly felt ottery with the amount of time that I spent in a creek:lol::lol:

Story time? What were you doing in the creek? I'm interested :hairynosed:

>> No.3881  

>>3842
Oh, nothing all to interesting. I was out doing some frisbee golfing with friends, I'd had a bit much to drink, and I fell into a creek that goes through multiple runs. It was really funny at the time, but it's become less so since it happened.

>>3881
Sounds like it was a fun time, and otters are all about having fun afterall, so along with the creek time it was certainly a very ottery day.
