Otters on Pea Island

Published 3:57 pm Thursday, February 4, 2021

A romp of North American river otters was seen recently on Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge.

Otters move easily through water, powered by a muscular tail and webbed feet. They also move well on land.

Their diet consists of turtles, crayfish, frogs, fish and a variety of amphibians.
