The European Otter (Lutra lutra), also known as the Eurasian otter, Eurasian river otter, common otter and Old World otter, is a European and Asian member of the Lutrinae or otter subfamily, and is typical of freshwater otters.

It differs from the North American river otter by its shorter neck, broader visage, the greater space between the ears and its longer tail.
