Giant Otters

Ed the Otter

These are the largest of the world's otters.  They live in the big rivers and lakes of the rainforests of South America, and their favourite food is piranhas.  They form family groups, and cooperate to bring up the babies, and when hunting.  They like to rest on big tree trunks, grooming each other's fur.
