/otter/ thread #0 Anonymous 04/07/2020 (Tue) 12:08:10 No.975 [Reply] [Last]
So I've noticed that since otters are already a very niche topic, most of the threads on this board are specific to a degree that very few people will participate in them, making /otter/'s activity suffer. There are few threads with more than a handful of replies on here. A solution to this could be to make a general thread, i. e. to throw everything into one b᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎ig conti᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎nuous thread where everything otter-related can be discussed. So let's try that out. Please direct your otterposting into this thread from now on.᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎᠎

Sea otters can actually walk on land, but they are much more clumsy than their river counterparts, because they spend much more time in the water.

Welcome brothers and sisters.
This is our new temporary abode, since 0net stinks and IRC just kinda didn't work out.
It's not gonna be quite the same as our beloved board on 8chan, but I'm confident it'll serve us well.
We don't know how much longer 8chan is gonna stay down, and I just couldn't take another day without otterposting.
I hope lots of fellow otterposters will sooner or later find their way here.
That being said, let's get comfy and enjoy a good time.

Does seem like the superior option over staying here or on 8kun. I'll see what I can do in terms of hosting one myself.
/kind/ has already made one, just to attempt to merge the existing communities into 1 central place. I think that being decentralized is going to benefit us in the long run, as there isn't going to be 1 single point of failure for 1 board (the reason why so many boards from old 8chan are dead in the water now).
I'd like us to stay in the webring too. I know about Kindchan, Otterchan sounds a lot more appealing though. Having an imageboard all to ourselves also means we won't have to live in the shadows of other boards anymore though I rather prefer /kind/ to /r9k/. It'd solve the question of staying here or moving back to 8kun, which is still sort of in limbo, so we won't have to hang around two boards at the same time.

/otter/ for the Infinity Cup 2020! Anonymous 12/05/2019 (Thu) 21:44:53 No.339 [Reply] [Last]
Hey /otter/ lovers,
We are currently streaming the group phase of the current year's 8chanCup (or as it's more properly known as the Infinity Cup) but due to the exodus and 8ch hiccups we've lost a few teams whose boards never really recovered.
Because of that, we thought it could be great if you guys could join us with a team of your own and participate in the next iteration of the cup, if you feel like it.
All you need to do is create a wiki entry of your own team over at http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Main_Page (use the layout of other teams as a preset), coming up with members/players that represent your board's culture and in-jokes, create a proper emblem and jersey combo and optionally choose strategies, skills and exportable 3d models using the rules set up at http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Rules and we'll make sure to consider your application for the future pot.

I should mention that we would also really appreciate if you came over to our cup's stream at https://cytu.be/r/8cup to spectate what the cup's really all about and to propose your own ideas to make it even better.
See you on the field!

>>1372 No it didn't, it was pretty bad. I think the problem was simply that we lacked the numbers on the offense and didn't press enough on the defense. >>1374 Is there a setting to increase the IQ of players somehow? Those galaxy-brain moments of our attackers not shooting at the goal while they were in the clear, and missing when they do, is probably what cost us the cup.
The Counter Target tactic should be turned off at least for the attacking midfielder, we can't have two players just standing around and doing nothing while the game happens around them.

>>101 >Can survive water hotter than human would care to bathe in How could they know this, except by throwing otters into hot water to see what would happen? Fucking glowniggers.
>>1363 I've been trying to find any other research on the water temperatures otters like, but I couldn't find anything yet. So I guess they did in fact test this themselves. Or maybe they just observed it in nature.
>>1363 >>1364 You could make the otter cross hot water to get a fish or something - or not, if it's too hot. This will also be more useful, since (presumably) you expect a trained otter to do something in hot water of its own volition.

Otter species Anonymous 10/01/2019 (Tue) 15:51:25 No.202 [Reply] [Last]
Hello /otter/,
The mustelid family is the most species-rich among all the carnivores. Of the subfamily Lutrinae, only 13 known species remain alive today.
There are also many lesser-known extinct species, such as Lutravus halli, Enhydritherium terraenovae, the genus Sivaonyx, etc.
I'd like to learn more about all of them to become a true otter connoisseur. Otters have a wide variety of species adapted to the different environments in which they live(d). So this thread is for sharing info and discussing about all the different otters that ever existed.

The exceptional otter of Umbria Lutraeximia umbra, or "the exceptional otter of Umbria", is one of six pleistocene otter species found in Italy. It was identified by a single cranium and lived approximately 1.8 million years ago. Source (in Italian): https://www.lanazione.it/umbria/cronaca/lontra-pantalla-umbria-1.1706389
Enhydritherium terraenovae A large otter that existed from late Miocene to early Pleistocene. It could live in freshwater and marine coastal habitats, and its fossils were found in several places in Florida and California. Source: https://www.floridamuseum.ufl.edu/florida-vertebrate-fossils/species/enhydritherium-terraenovae >Otters, or members of the mustelid subfamily Lutrinae, fall into into two different groups based on the anatomy of their carnassial teeth, the upper fourth premolar (P4) and the lower first molar (m1). One group is called the “fish-eating” otters (Repenning, 1976; Lambert, 1997) and includes the extinct otter genus Satherium and the extant otter genera Lutra, Lontra, Pteronura, Amblonyx, and Aonyx. These otters are characterized by more blade-like carnassials, unlike the other group of otters, the bunodont otters. Bunodont otters possess non-blade-like carnassials with thick enamel and rounded cusps. The bunodont otters include the extant genus Enhydra (sea otters) as well as the extinct genera Enhydritherium and Enhydriodon (Lambert, 1997). >The genus Enhydritherium is thought to be closely related to the Enhydra and Enhydriodon, two genera found in late Miocene to early Pleistocene fossil sites of Europe, Asia, and Africa (Berta and Morgan, 1985; see Figure 2). This clade may be differentiated from all other members of the subfamily Lutrinae by the lack of the first premolar, a shorter rostrum, and bunodont cusps on the lower first molar (node 2, Figure 2). Enhydriodon is overall larger in size and is characterized by an “isolated” hypocone on the upper fourth premolar, which is different from Enhydritherium and Enhydra, which share several features including similar body size and the shapes of the upper fourth premolars and lower first molars (node 3, Figure 2). Enhydritherium may be distinguished from both Enhydriodon and Enhydra by the anterior and medial position of the protocone in the upper fourth premolar (Figure 3) and by the absence of the protostylid and presence of the metastylid on the lower first molar (Figure 4; Berta and Morgan, 1985; Lambert, 1997). Currently, Enhydritherium terraenovae is the only species in the genus. Tl;dr: There are two overall categories of otters, based on teeth structure. Enhydritherium is closely related to sea otters.

Are there any other otter-related sites/forums/communities that you use? Maybe we can get a good otter links thread going. I've found that otter fans seem to mostly frequent your typical sites like Facebook, Twitter and Reddit. I tried using them a few times but all that seems to go on there is people reposting the same funny otter pictures (not that I'd want to denigrate our brothers in those places). Still, it's interesting how the imageboard format can instantly improve any topical discussion. Anyways, here are some links.
