London, Aug 28 : Otters have been voted as Britons' most favourite mamma.
The whiskery predators won the British mammal survey by 13 per cent of the vote.
They pipped hedgehogs to the second place, reports The Sun.
They were followed by badgers, foxes, squirrels and deer.
Mice, dolphins, stoats and bats completed the top ten in BBC Wildlife mag.
Otters are rarely seen in the wild, but have recently appeared in TV's Springwatch and An Otter In The Family.
Dolphins have fallen in popularity.
BBC Wildlife's Mark Stratton said it could be down to dolphin enclosures closing at zoos.
