North American Mounts: General



The craftsmen at Arden Creek have beautifully captured the captivating features of the Otter in our Standing Otter taxidermy mount. 

The Otter is a semi aquatic mammal who is part of the weasel family. Otters have long, slim bodies with short limbs and webbed feet. Their brown fur consists of a soft insulated under fur which is protected by an outer layer of guard hairs which helps keep the Otter dry and warm.

Otters live in dens known as a holt. Active hunters in water; their main source of nourishment is fish along with frogs, crabs and shellfish. These mammals are also quite playful creatures.


Attached to a piece of natural wood, this free standing piece is sure to add charm and elegance to any décor setting. Each piece is crafted in house here in the U.S.A. As this is a natural product, please be aware no two animals are exactly alike.


All of the products handmade at Arden Creek are custom creations by our skilled artisans. If you would like to have us build something similar to the one pictured, perhaps with your own custom design idea, simply call or email us to place your order.
