I got bitten by an otter once. True story. "Pursat" the Hairy-nosed otter currently residing at Phnom Tamao - when I bought him down into town from the lake.
First ever recorded white man to be bitten by the world's rarest otter species, I am.
(He had been captured when an infant and spent his whole 12-month life chained up on the front porch of remote floating house on the lake - and hence not suitable for release)
Anyway the concerned conservation org that does the otter thing here in Cambodia, C.I., recommended I get some Rabies shots
- on the basis that otters sit squarely between dogs and cats on the Carnivore taxonomic tree.
So keep that in mind next time you get savaged by an otter in Cambodia.
They administer Verorab and the cost there is $34 per injection.
Pre exposure they would do a 3 shot course with the same vaccine and would only "top up" if a bite occured.
You can probably get it done cheaper, but I prefer it there. It's a clean environment and you can trust them to store the vaccine correctly. It's also super quick. I usually walk in, pay and get the shot in ~5 minutes.
