OTTERS

A few months ago I was driving in England across the Wirral from Bebington to Barnston when I saw an animal cross the road in the distance. It was as long as a fox buut didn't have a bushy tale and the legs of it were shorter than a fox or a dog. It was too long for a cat and it seemed to almost glide. It was far too big an animal to be a stoat or polecat. I am wondering if it was an otter? :scratch:
Just because you see two eyes shining in the jungle at night, do not think that the worse thing that could happen is that you are about to be attacked by a tiger. It could be two one-eyed tigers.

Very possibly. Otters are a big success story ...

In the Wirral, they've gone from 1 to 2% positive identifications to 75% positives. Can't be bad.

That's good news so it is. We were puzzled to see such an odd -looking animal. Didn't even think of otters at the time of it. Good that they are becoming more seen. :cheers:
