How would you obtain an otter? Considering I'm from the UK. I'm not wanting one just interested.

You will see Asian short clawed otters offered up for sale quite often but they are DWAL.

I have heard some pretty bad things about otters, such as they are mean bity highly aggressive animals. Are these just extreme dramatizations or are they really that bad?

The are bitey. Not so much mean but that's just how they are. They play, explore, everything with their mouths. If you work hard you can teach them to bite nice with you but you should never trust them with others.

A friend brought his otter to visit once. Strict no touching rule but I got to watch him run around. He bit at my shoe. He brought him in riding on his shoulder. Otter Pop he posted here a couple times.

What a wonderful collection you collected up!

Otters one of the other love of my life and always was interested to see closer about their behaviour over the net but never got so many information in a pile.

One day would be great to share my life with one even though they seem almost impossible to get where I live and not even having any idea is it possible to get one in Europe even. Not on my country for sure.

Is there anyone on forum with thread who having any?
Just to read and see photos - or maybe someone with youtube channel or homepage?

Look for Otterpop's posts. I don't think he put any photos up but he talked about his some.
