Otter by Prof Phil Whitfield, Animal Planet


Otter by Prof Phil Whitfield, Animal Planet

From the earliest moments as a pup, being fed and groomed by its mother and being protected from hungry predators, to learning how to dive and hunt, up through eventually being left to swim and find food on its own, this book traces the entire lifecycle of the matriarchal otter. Endnotes explain the science behind the story and extend the scientific learning.
