This lovely new title follows the life cycle of an otter, from a cub's first steps out of its den to finding a mate. You can also find out about some of the different habitats that are the otter's home, the threats facing otters today and why some people see them as pests. You can also be an 'animal detective' and find out how you can tell if an otter has been in your neighbourhood. Includes an animal map, locator map, life cycle summary and 'unusual fact' boxes.>
