Lunch time for the Giant Otters.
Giant Otters are social semi aquatic mammals. I've seen them moving in small groups in the Kabalebo river. They feed mostly on fish and to catch some they work as a group to ambush their prey. During one of my recent boat trips I met one family while they were having lunch.
First we didn't even know that the Giant Otters were having their meal during the afternoon. We first spotted this 'solitary' one. Probably had the task to be on the look out.
Soon after we spotted the first, we started to see more Otters. Here the first was accompanied by a second one. We noticed that they did not make any effort at all to move away or go into the bushes. We continued our journey and .....
..... saw the rest of the family having lunch near a log. They know how to pick a spot. The background matches their own color too.
There were at least 6 members in this family. A couple were eating and a couple were on the look out or just hanging around. Here you see one member holding its food firmly while eating.
This one was not in the mood of sharing its food with us. Explaining the angry look on its face.
After a while, they decided to finish their meal behind this log. So this meant that the show was over and we continued our own journey.
