The seasonal spatial distribution and diet of the Neotropical otterLontra longicaudis (Olfers, 1818) were studied on Ibera Lake within the Esteros del Ibera, an important wetland of NE Argentina (Ramsar site no. 1162). Twelve lake perimeter sites were regularly checked for otter tracks and signs. The amount of signs was compared to environmental parameters to test their influence on otter presence and movements.
