One three mornings I had breakfast with the endangered Giant River Otter, that grows up to a impressive length of 1.7 m with only around a thousand left globally by some estimates. Once they were heavily hunted for their soft fur, but in Pantanal, Brazil their population is slowly recovering, making it easier to spot. They are really sociable creatures, living in cohesive families which are active during the day retiring to their dens at dusk. Watching them effortlessly catch their favourite akari catfish for breakfast was really a memorable sight!
