I don't know about that! Here's an otter pup fighting a stuffed walrus. The stuffed walrus wins.

NW Florida has a small population of river otters.  They are the slinkiest, funniest, playful-est mammals ever.

Here's how an otter waves

Stop parking your car in the river.

You might think twice about that solution

A pair of anal musk glands are present on both males and females. This musk can be released when the otter is frightened, but it is not as offensive as the musk of other members of the mustelid, or weasel, family.

They smell.  It's damn hard to get rid of it.

Also a good one. I like this thread. It needs more cute stinky otter pics though.

You know; humans have musk glands. And we can get pretty damn stinky. Just don't scare your otter.

Yeah and the are almost always vicious little murder machines, even 'pet' ones. Think about it, how could an animal that cute and that intelligent not be a common household pet?  It's because they are evil little bastards when they are held in captivity.

I don't know.  They've bred tame foxes in Russia, I'll bet we could breed tame otters.

Reminds me of an episode of "Fringe" when Walter goes to the alternate universe and sees a bag of "Beaver chow" on a store shelf.  "You have domesticated beavers?"

That would be pretty cool...pet beavers.

I'm not super keen on any undomesticated animals being kept as pets no matter how cute they are. I'll stick with dogs, thanks.

This is true.  One thing to consider is that when you breed domesticated foxes you end up with something that greatly resembles an ordinary dog in behavior and strangely enough in appearance as well.  I wonder what sort of genetic baggage would come along with a line of domesticated otters.  I had a pet pygmy hedgehog and they are only partly domesticated at this point.  Some of the behavior that we noticed in Milton was pretty interesting.

Anyone else hungry looking at these pics?

They still look like foxes, it's the coat colors and tail shapes that changed.  They determined coat color in silver foxes was linked to levels of adreneline.  Wild foxes have far more adreneline than tame ones.  How beavers or otters would change would be determined by how reduced "fear" or "mean" hormones affect their current appearance.

In my, anecdotal, experience wild Beavers don't really seem to think much about people unless they have a dog with them. There is a small lodge at the back end of our woodlot. If I'm quiet and not threatening them they usually ignore me until I'm pretty close to their pond. The first time we found them we had just assumed that the stream was a little high due to do rain and we didn't notice the beavers until one of them started smacking the water with his tail, which was a clear sign that he didn't like us hanging around his pond/lodge. It's not a big dam and it's all junk softwood back there so we just let them be. Every time we go back to check it out to make sure they aren't expanding their pond they just ignore us unless the dog is with us.  Then the dog and the beavers have a fit.  So we don't bring the dog anymore.

Mmmm.  Pet beavers.  Actually, it sounds more like a current hobby.

Anyway, this made me laugh:
