Abstract


ABSTRACT

This research is based on field observations of a male Otter (Lutra lutra) specimen killed by hunters in february of 2014 at the city of Balıkesir. The generation of this species is in danger in both Turkey and the World. For this reason, it is placed in the category of protected species with the Bern and CITES agreements. This study, based on true sample, is important by filling  a brick in the Wall in the existence of an empty hole in the distribution localities of Otter in Turkey.


Keywords
