Is That a Beaver in Our Pond?

Nope, it’s an otter.  Three to be exact.  How do I know when they look exactly like beavers when they are swimming?  Because beavers are nocturnal and otters swim openly in daylight, usually in groups.  Beavers are considered nuisance animals, Otters are protected in our state.  Beavers eat vegetation, they are particularly fond of willow 😦  Otters eat the fish in our pond.  I am like an encyclopedia of rhodents vs. weasels after a few years of beaver wars.  sigh.
