Asian Small-clawed Otter

Aonyx cinereus

The small-clawed otter is the smallest of all otter species and is one of three species known as the clawless otters.



Size: Head-body length - 41 - 64cm, Tail length - 25 - 35cm
Weight: 1 - 5kg



Asian small-clawed otters inhabit shallow, fast flowing waters in Southeast Asia.



In the wild these otters have a varied diet of crabs, snails, frogs, young birds, eggs, fish and small mammals.



Female can have up to 2 litters a year. They are pregnant for around 2 months and usual litter sizes are between 3 to 6 young.



The Asian small-clawed otter is threatened in the wild due to river pollution and habitat loss. Conservation actions for this species include the creation of protected habitats and reduction in pollution.
