When bigger is better: the giant otter edition

According to Keri, who introduced me to the wild and wonderful world of giant South American otters, they can grow up to six feet long. Just imagine, sitting next to one of these guys at the coffeeshop, or seeing two of them in the frozen foods aisle of your local grocery store!! Wow! I wish!!!

And check out this amazing picture that I couldn't figure out how to resize:

Yum yum yum

Ahhhhhh!!! So cute, so crazy!!! They look like a character in a Pixar or a live-action kids' movie where a little boy learns to believe in himself with the help of Ottie, the giant otter he finds living in his bathtub! To learn more about actual giant otters, check out Giant Otter.Org. They have a section about ecotourism!!! Oh how I want to go on a giant otter themed vacation!
