The Asian Small-Clawed Otter is a mammalian Friend species that debuted in the original Kemono Friends mobile game and later appeared as a character in the Kemono Friends anime. She has since made an appearance in Kemono Friends Pavilion.
Otter has short light gray hair that lightens to white on the bangs. Her ears are small and slightly pointed, and she has dark grey eyes. She wears a typical one piece swim suit that has a frilled waist, white on the chest and belly but generally gray. She has long finger-less gloves that come up past her elbow. Her tail closely resembles the actual tail of an otter. Finally, she wears long thigh-high socks along her legs.
In Real Life
Living in groups of up to 15 to 20 individuals, Asian Small-Clawed Otters are very vocal and have a vocabulary with at least 12 different vocalizations. These are used for summons, greetings, threats and alarms. In addition, there are multiple forms of delivery: visual, chemical or tactile. Otters use scent markings as well, emitting a musky smell to mark their territory.
Despite being social and living in large groups, otters hunt for themselves, not the entire group. In the wild, otters commonly eat mollusks and crustaceans but their diet also includes : fish, insects, frogs and reptiles. They use their fore-paws to search for food as they have incomplete webbing between the toes. Their sensitive pads let them detect food underwater.
