Asian Small-Clawed Otter



Charismatic and full of boundless energy, the Asian small-clawed otter is equally at home on land as in the water. Social, the small-clawed otter lives in family groups of up to 12 individuals and their offspring.  Listed as vulnerable to extinction, the loss of natural habitat is a key factor in their conservation. You can find our small-clawed otters in the Tropics exhibit.
