A single adult otter, foraging near one of the observation platforms. They must spend a fair amount of time on the observation platform as well, evidenced by the amount of fish-scale scat.

Cool! do you have a photo?

No, the otter was surprisingly wary for an animal in such a highly visited area; at least the otters aren't as habituated as the ducks. I feigned indifference and let the otter's indignance/curiosity draw it in - eventually the animal got fairly close. Someone with the ability to take a decent photograph (e.g., Michelle or anyone else who is not me) could probably get a good picture.
