The fish otter, common otter or the Eurasian otter is found in the waterways and on the coasts in Europe, Asia and Africa. In Finland it can be found throughout the country, though less often on the south-western coastlines. The common otter needs waterways, lakes and rivers, as its habitat. Their webbed feet, slender body structure, and long tail foretell of great aquatic adaptation, they also close their ears and nostrils while diving under water. The common otter is mainly dusk and night-active, preferring a solitary existence in its territory. It feeds on frogs, crayfish, waterbird’s eggs and young ones as well as fish.
The wolverine breeds in the northern hemisphere around the globe. The population, however, is sparse and constantly declining. Majority of the wolverines in Finland live in the northern and eastern parts of the country. In the 1980’s and -90’s wolverines were introduced to the central and western parts of Finland. The wolverine prefers conifer forests and mountainous areas. Its main nutrition consists of carrion, but it may also prey on reindeer and other smaller mammals. It may take advantage of the offal of a moose, and it enjoys berries in the woods also. Wolverines are extremely mobile and they have a large habitat. They can travel even 50 km in a day. The solitary wolverine is mainly night-active.
