3. Spotted-Necked Otter
Known for the creamy white blotch around its throat, the spotted-necked otter is primarily found in the southern portion of Ethiopia and other parts of sub-Saharan Africa. As with most otters, it tends to congregate around rivers, but is noticeably missing from many rivers in East Africa. The hunting of the animal for bushmeat, along with pollution of the water systems, has regrettably lowered their numbers.
