Lontra canadensisNorth American River Otter2019-11-10Craig Leirer 2I saw two otters swimming in our creek, (a portion of Deep Creek), one caught a fish and climbed onto a log in the water to eat it. They were obviously otters by the way they swam, and I was able to get close enough to see them clearly and take a picture. - 344 River Gorge RunrnRougemont, NC 27572photo02_Photo
