Giant River Otter and Water

The giant River Otters are stupendous in the water. They are sleek and strong and move as if they are a form of water themselves. Their powerful "wing like" tail propels them and their big, strong webbed feet can grab fish and crustaceans. They use their feet like hands to grasp their catch and eat it.
