Giant River Otter – World’s Largest and Rarest Otter

Giant River Otter – World’s Largest and Rarest Otter

Guyana’s giant river otters are a surprise – the largest in the world.  They were first documented at the Karanambu Lodge in the North Rupununi in 1988. World famous conservationist, Diane McTurk, worked tirelessly on rehabilitating otters in this region. Since then, a stable population has been present in the area, providing wildlife enthusiasts an opportunity to observe these rare and extraordinary creatures. Nowadays giant river otters can be seen along expansive stretches of the Rupununi River and tributaries like the Rewa River.
