Everybody loves otters, and why wouldn’t they? One of the cutest animals in the world, otters make you want to just snuggle up with them. But, trying to snuggle with them would probably be a bad idea. It is not arguable that otters are cute, but like all cute animals, they can be ugly too. Being a carnivore, otters eat fish, insects, amphibians, and mollusks. In order to eat these things, they have special teeth. If you ever saw one eating, you would realize they look like a maniac, and not a sweet furry animal. One bite from them, and you could lose a finger! For that reason, I would stay away from trying to pet an otter.
