WOnderful Wildlife

We had breakfast with otters yesterday (Monday ) morning. It  was delightful to watch them squabble over fish and make a raucous noise. I’m sure I heard otterish for “gimme some”, “paws off it’s mine” and “mamma, he’s not sharing!”

It really has been a great way to watch wildlife. Quite often on safaris or nature spotting by the time I’ve worked out what I should be looking at it’s moved on, but this time we were somehow closer.

Not all the creatures are great… I am riddled with bites beginning to look like jaguar with my blotches. It’s  Greg 2 Val 0 really as he covered up and I wore shorts

The bugs were not repelled!

    What’s chicken tarka? Like chicken tikka but a bit ‘otter! (Tarka the otter – geddit?)

    The giant otter (Pteronura brasiliensis) is a South American carnivorous mammal. It is the longest member of the Mustelidae, or weasel family, a globally successful group of predators, reaching up to 1.7m (5.6 ft). Atypical of mustelids, the giant otter is a social species, with family groups typically supporting three to eight members.
