Giant Otter – Nearly Wiped From The Planet

Nearly Wiped From The Planet

     Deep in the wilds of the Brazilian Pantanal, a Giant Otter dines on a tasty fish meal.  This largest of the mustelids [members of the weasel family] were nearly wiped from the planet because of the fur industry.  Today it is listed as an endangered species throughout its range primarily due to habitat destruction.
