Otter Lutra lutra droppings (known as spraint) are typically black and shiny when fresh. They are usually placed in the open by water on prominent places such as rocks. These were about 5cm long, contained hard crustacean fragments and placed on the top of the concrete wall of a canal. Photo taken in Hungary, October 2014, by Gerard Gorman.
