Otters Who Look Like Benedict Cumberbatch (PICTURES)

If a picture speaks a thousand words, then the ones below possibly speak more than the complete works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Yes, thanks to the marvellous Red Scharlach, we can never now unsee the likeness between everyone's favourite Sherlock Holmes, Benedict Cumberbatch, and everyone's favourite furry semi-aquatic mammal, the otter.

Enjoy! And prepare for the next instalment: 'Puppies Who Look Like Martin Freeman'. We hope.
