Darn huge otter that thing. It’s got the shoulders of a heavy weight boxer and the belly to match ( like fat Sarah ).

Unless it’s about to pup it’s a seal and why not on the Gt. Ouse? When otters are in pup they are really skittish and don’t pose for anyone.

What sort of boat are you in ? 

If you’re a indigenous native you’re allowed to harpoon them for your own consumption 😙

Only seen the odd one on our waterways, but I am pretty sure you only see a percentage of what is really there , with having very few enemies ( apart from man ) there is nothing more surer they will keep multiplying in good numbers .

We spotted three trotting (if that's the word) over a field here in somerset when we were foxing the other night. They are very strange creatures seen through a thermal spotter on land 🙂
