Baby Otters Welcome Human

A group of baby otters welcome a human with lots of hugs and kisses. These are Asian small-clawed otters also known as the oriental small-clawed otter or simply small-clawed otter, is a semiaquatic mammal native to South and Southeast Asia and is the smallest otter species in the world. The Asian small-clawed otter inhabits mangrove swamps and freshwater wetlands in South and Southeast Asia. It lives in extended family groups with only the alpha pair breeding; offspring from previous years help to raise the young. Due to ongoing habitat loss, pollution, and hunting in some areas, it is listed as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List. They are seriously threatened by rapid habitat destruction, hunting and pollution. Their population trend is decreasing despite being a protected species. There are currently conservation and breeding efforts to save these otters.
