The River Otter Ecology Project is most interested in this otter, and are trying to find out from whence he came (it is a male). He could have swum over from Marin; there are otters in the Headlands and in Sausalito. We don’t currently have information about river otter south of San Francisco. If anyone sees river otters on the SF Peninsula, please let us know by filling out an Otter Spotter report on our website!
Come out and hear about our project at the SF Naturalists Society, November 8, 7:30 at the Randall Museum!
I was wondering that myself. I did a double-take at first, thinking could this be a sea otter. But of course it’s not. Please let us know if you track down where this little guy came from.
