Male otter on the prowl

Even though otter can mate anytime during the year, this male otter is on the prowl looking for a female whose kits are old enough for her to mate for a new litter in the spring. Female otters have what is called a delayed implantation, that's where the egg is fertilized but does not attach to the uterine wall until two months before the kits are born.
