A baby Giant Otter rests up on shore while its family fishes and plays in the river.
This was a really really lucky sighting as Giant Otters are extremely protective of their babies and usually stay far away with them.
I skipped lunch and wandered down to the river. I heard big splashing and something crying out.
I quietly crawled to the bank of the river and saw this little guy right below me less than 10 feet away! The mom immediately grabbed it and left(below).
