Text Appearing After Image:
THE OTTER. LUTRA CANADENSIS OR LUTRA HUDSONICA. The animal apparently enjoys aregular sort of toboggan slide. TWO FAMOUS SWIMMERS. 157 This remarkable propensity for sliding is one ofthe strangest habits of the otter. That the animalshould apparently enjoy a regular sort of tobogganslide is almost past ones comprehension. But such isundoubtedly the case. Audubon says : The otters ascend the bank at aplace suitable for their diversion, and sometimes whereit is very steep, so that they are obliged to make quitean effort to gain the top. They slide down in rapidsuccession where there are many at a sliding place.On one occasion we were resting ourselves on thebank of Canoe Creek, a small stream near Henderson,which empties into the Ohio, when a pair of ottersmade their appearance, and, not observing our prox-imity, began to enjoy their sliding pastime. . . . Wecounted each one making twenty-two slides before wedisturbed their sportive occupation. The borders of lakes and streams
