10/10 otters prefer whiskers!

Taken at Whipsnade zoo, UK

Otter whiskers are vital for hunting in murky water. This was proved by an experiment in which an otter's whiskers were CHOPPED OFF. He took 20 times as long to find his food! Thankfully the whiskers grew back. http://www.amblonyx.com/otter.php?id=DidYouKnow
