Otters have expressive faces that seem to communicate joy and amusement. In fact, according to sources such as Otter World, otters are quite the playful species. The animals are often observed constructing and sliding down waterslides and playing with stones and twigs that they treat as toys.
Otters are social animals who are "chatty" with each other, to the point that observing a number of them interacting can appear loud and chaotic. Like so many other animal species, experts believe that otters have their own sort of language, consisting of a variety of sounds that others in their social groups seem to recognize and comprehend.
How can one look at these pictures — particularly of those that show them interacting — and not think they have a true fondness for others of their social group? Their affinity for each other is palpable.
