Cape Clawless Otter

To witness a Cape clawless otter hunting in the sea at dusk is indeed a privilege and a rarity. At Storms River mouth, in South Africa, I was fortunate enough to watch a pair of these amazing animals hunting in the surf zone for three evenings in a row, with the highlight being when one of the inquisitive otters came to have a good look at me sitting only a few meters away.
