Emmit is a river otter, who came to Busch Wildlife Sanctuary with a very infected wound to the head.

He required extensive care for several months.

As one can see in the photo, he became very bonded to his care giver, Animal Care Director Amy Kight.

Otters are relatively common throughout Florida. There is plenty of available habitat with all the wetland environments scattered about the State.

Otters will utilize marshes, rivers, lakes, ponds and canals.

Even in very developed areas, you can see otters, but remember otters do not make good pets.
