‘Extinct’ Japanese Otter Caught on Camera After Nearly Four Decades

A wild otter previously thought to be extinct has been caught on camera on Tsushima Island, Japan.

Japan Times reported that this has been the first sighting of this particular species of wild otter in the country for at least 38 years, according to University of the Ryukyus.
