The Carolina Otter

Record #:
Because of the superior quality of their fur, otters were almost trapped into extinction across the country. It wasn't many years ago that otters were extremely rare in North Carolina. Now, protected by strict game laws, the Carolina otter is sufficiently numerous again in the eastern part of the state to warrant an open season for trapping. Amundson discusses the otter's range, characteristics, food and breeding habits, management, general behavior, and having them as pets.
