Cape Clawless Otter CW

A family of Cape Clawless Otters visting Cape St Francis and local photographer Clive Wright captured the moment.

Though mostly solitary animals, African clawless otters will live in neighboring territories of family groups of up to five individuals.

Awkward on land but acrobats in the water, these animals spend their days swimming and catching food. They return to underground burrows for safety, cooling or a rubdown using grasses and leaves.

Mainly aquatic creatures, their tails are used for locomotion and propel them through the water. They are also used for balance when walking or sitting upright
