A very nice story 🙂


Hi Amy, just wondering if you noticed that the pic of the otter is a female. If you look closely you will see a dark nipple on her belly. She looks like she could be lactating and feeding young. You could also have the spotted neck otter in the Sand River as they occur in the Crocodile and Nkomati catchments. A smaller animal but prettier with its spots and not as prolific as Cape Clawless. Otters are by and large nocturnal which explains why they are not seen often seen which makes these pictures that much more special.

Amazing Tim! Thank you! So exciting to know that there’s always the possibility of a whole family of otters in front of Granite Camp now. We really appreciate the comment and extra info.. All the best, Amy

Fantastic!! I’ve once caught a glimpse of two otters on the Vaal River, I had just turned a bend in the river and saw them swimming and then they both dove underwater right in front of my kayak!
