E.S. Devenish, C. Sayer


Trinidad hosts the only insular population of the Neotropical River Otter, Lontra longicaudis. A brief literature review of the species is given here, based on studies from the mainland South American population and recent research in Trinidad. The conservation status of this island species is poorly known, and an overview is presented, together with some distributional data for Trinidad.
