While river otters spend most of their time in water, they do travel across land as well—often in search of a mate. Otters even make their land travel look playful. They run a few steps and then slide on their bellies. One slide can be as long as 20 feet (6 meters) and may reach a speed of 18 miles (29 kilometers) an hour. Clearly, otters know how to have fun!
