Asian short clawed otters

The Asian Short Clawed Otter might be the smallest otter in the world and it might have shorter claws than other otters but don’t think that’s going to hold it back. It’s a great swimmer and has some unusual characteristics for an otter.

Asian Short Clawed Otters are the only otters that catch their prey in the claws, which they are able to do because of their unique, partially webbed feet. It makes them much more dextrous than other species of otter and very successful as hunters. Meet our otters Max and Skittle.
