Stormy Waters “It was great fun swimming amongst the breaking waves, where the turtles fed. They’d get smashed in to the rocks as they ate but they didn’t seem to care. Lacking the shell, I had to be more careful” - by Lance Sagar
The word otter derives from the Old English word otor or oter. This, and cognate words in other Indo-European languages, ultimately stem from the Proto-Indo-European language root *wódr̥, which also gave rise to the English word "water".
