These otters live in small groups near bodies of water, such as streams and mangroves. They use their long tails to swim swiftly underwater, where they feed on small fish and crustaceans. They use their urine and excrement to mark their territory. They are the smallest species of otter, and as their name implies, they have distinctively small claws.
