Loop on the Otter trail (Vendee)


The otter from Vendee is a carnivorous mammal of the mustelid family. It is recognizable by its dark brown fur, pointed snout, and webbed feet. The otter is a semi-aquatic animal, meaning that it lives both on land and in water. It feeds primarily on fish, but it can also eat amphibians, crustaceans, and birds. The otter is an important animal for the Marais poitevin ecosystem. It helps to regulate fish populations and other aquatic animals. It is also an indicator of water quality.
