Lontra Canadensis
Making its home in the lakes, ponds, and streams of northern Minnesota, the river otter is the state’s largest aquatic carnivore. Known as a playful species, the otter can swim and maneuver better than many fish. The otter’s calls can be heard as they swim with only their heads above the water’s surface. This sound was captured at Lake Itasca, also known as the headwaters of the Mississippi River.
