    Otters are playful animals in real. It would be neat to have them play with the items before picking them up too. A bit like the dolphin behavior :)

     

    Upvoted, I would definitely like to see this!

    This is a great idea but I would like to see the otters as a independent mob that doesn't help the player progress as in taming but as a mob that just does whatever.

    Even pet penguins could also get the job done by using already textured fish barrel block... I personally think that would give a diversity of mobs in ice spikes biomes n also as a pet mob for the players ...

    I was thinking maybe they could spawn in groups of up to five be neutral and at night they would lie on their back in the sea and would carry their baby on their tummy.but yeah I think otters are a great idea.

    Also it would be cool if their was a new type of villager called the village otter feeder and would trade clam meat for emerald's and stuff like that.

    Tame a sea otter with cod not clam meat and everything else sounds good

    This would be good but what if the otters and dolphins work together sometimes and give you treasure or treasure maps.

    Maybe also make it so Otters behave similarly to how the cats do? If they are near a water source and are 'Standing' when you go to sleep/bed they have a chance of having gone 'diving' and caught a random type of fish or some random litter that you would get if you were fishing.

    Also, like the ideas of Otters playing like Dolphins and Otters playing together with items. I would also say that if an Otter is attacked they will fight back unless below half of their health is gone and they would try and run away. It would be interesting to also see them spawn in groups and at night in the ocean if left alone they will fall asleep on the surface face up and paws out and will 'partner up' if you would with another Otter within their group to sleep.

    I think otters should act more like wolves for the sea.

    Dude that is awesome!! I love it also how do you get so many views on your idea?? Because i posted this cool idea on different wolve packs in minecraft but no one has seen it :(

    What would be the use of a fishing rod if you could just use an Otter? Also, Otters are not a tamed animal, and I feel like controlling it to do things would have bad implications. I personally don't like being lazy in Minecraft and have animals do my work for me. Maybe instead of just giving you the fish, it just leads you to more of that item instead after you make friends with it? Kinda like dolphins leading your to treasure.

    But again, I feel like the player should be independent. Sure, animals can help with things like maybe herding and scaring away creepers, but when it comes to hunting and gathering, I feel like that should be up to the player.

    I didn't even think of this, it's amazing! I just wanna know how many things they'll gather. If you walk away, will he/she keep diving for fish if that's what you choose to find in the water? Because there are a lot of fish, and if you're fishing in a river, it probably leads to an ocean, and think of how many fish are there. Maybe the otter gets tired. Also, clams could be cool to find at the bottom of the ocean. You might be able to get their shells as well as the meat. Though, I'm for this idea 100%.

    -It should be neutral mob that give player -1.5 heart
    -spawn in pack of 3-5 with 2 adult and 1-3 pup
    -breedable
    -pillager and illager will try to attack it as pillager coat was somehow looks like some animal skin
    -it will come in different texture like cat and horse
    -it will hunt fish for player
    -it can stand or sit
    -the sea otter and river otter is different specie and different egg
    -it drop 1 otter skin and that can be used to make furniture

    This comment is not to criticize anything
    Your ideas were amazing
    Otter is basically my fav animal for so long.

    And sometimes you could find them floating on their backs, holding a nautilus shell in their paws!

    This feature would make dolphins and otters an amazing team, the dolphin leading you to treasure that might have a heart of the sea, and the otter already having a shell, making you spend less time waiting for a wandering tradesman.

    There should be a limit on how much you can "use" the otter. And then it would need a break for a certain amount of time.
