I really do love an otter,
They are engaging creatures,
They certainly have a lotta
Charm and some engaging features!

Did you know that they hold hands,
As they go to sleep?
This is all utterly pre-planned,
So they don’t drift apart in the deep.

Their den is called a holt or couch,
Their family is known as a romp,
And this playful creature is never a grouch,
Just a simple mammal – no pomp!

The male is a dog, the female a bitch,
And their offspring is a pup,
They dine on a diet largely of fish,
And they are really cute close-up!
