    It looks a bit like an otter to me. Otters have that kind of head shaped and are also animals that live close to water.

    I agree, looks like an otter to me. I have seen some in Florida and they look like this photo.

    Appears to be an otter to me. It's certainly not a beaver.

    That is a Canadian River Otter.  Beavers have very pronounced front teeth and are often squat in stature.  The ears are tiny on otters as well.  At first I thought maybe a Ferret.

    That is not a beaver, that is an otter. If I am in doubt about a species, I check Wikipedia.

    It looks more like an otter.  The beaver has a wider head and larger front teeth.
