Otters are cute semi-aquatic mammals that are sometimes mistaken for beavers. River otters are water-going carnivores. They feed mostly on fish, but frogs, turtles, and geese are also acceptable for food. The sea otter likes shellfish. Sea otters float along on their back, placing sea urchins or abalone shells on their chest and hammering their food open with a rock. They are very smart and durable creatures. They can be found in many different types of climates all over the world, as long as there is water in which to swim and hunt. They quickly move into a new area and develop deep burrows that extend into embankments. Otters can cause a decline of a body of water's fish population and usually leave a lot of otter waste. While otter problems are not very common in Jacksonville, Animal Removal Jacksonville & Northeast Florida will trap otters, and provide otter removal and proofing services to surrounding North Florida areas including St. Johns, Clay, Nassau, Duval, Baker and Putnam counties.
