988-46 - Eurasian river otter (Lutra lutra) resting in the seaweed and rocks. Otters spend a great deal of time resting, usually close to the water's edge or on rocks just offshore. This time is spent sleeping and preening fur etc. Notice the recent injuries sustained by this otter around the head and neck area. Hebrides, Scotland
