Lontra canadensisNorth American River Otter2018-06-25Susan HamlettoneSwimming in the creek. When it saw me, it went under, swan down stream about 15 feet and popped it's head up and looked straight at me; went back under and swam about 10 feet to a bank (mud at the end of a beaver dam), went over the bank and went back into the water, out of sight. What a treat!! - Mountain Creek in Chapel Hill, NC.05_Sight
