Not to be confused with sea otters
A small river mammal with a long body. They enjoy eating shellfish and other small animals.

River otters can serve as nice pets, though they may not be worth the effort to train. River otters do not need grass to survive, so they can be useful as a back up meat reserve in a 'safe room', but only if you invest the time to catch, train, and breed them.
