In Real Life

Oriental Small-Clawed Otters live in groups of up to 15 to 20 individuals. They are very vocal and have a vocabulary of at least 12 different vocalizations. They use these for summons, greetings, threats and alarms. These communications can be visual, chemical or tactile. Otters use scent markings as well, they emit a musky smell and can mark their territory using this.

Despite being social and living in large groups otters will hunt for themselves rather than as a group. In the wild, most otters eat mollusks and crustaceans but can also eat fish, insects, frogs and reptiles. Otters will use their fore-paws to search for food as they have incomplete webbing between the toes and sensitive pads that lets them feel for food underwater.
