Wolf of the river by Svenimal Wolf of the river by Svenimal
Otters are often called wolves of the rivers, because they hunt often in small groups (like wolves).

Hab neulich 'ne doku über die "Lobo del Rios" (Riesenotter) in Südamerika geguckt. Ist eine Schande, dass es mehr Otter im Zoo als in Freiheit zu geben scheint - zumindest in Deutschland.

Nice shot! And I like the description of otters as wolves of the river; I'd never heard that expression. (Though I have heard owls called the tigers of the air.)

Oh, cool. Ich dachte nur der Riesenotter wird "Flusswolf" genannt..

Svenimal Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2010   Photographer
Bei den Riesenottern ist es tatsächlich der indianische Name, aber für viele Otterarten wird der Ausdruck in vielen Sprachen verwendet.

great! I have not heard about the "wolves", this is not how we nickname them here :D

very nice photo - I think that otters are always a test for a camera, because it is so diffcult to photograph their fur!

One of the most detailed otter shots I've seen yet. Very impressive work, Sven. I love the lighting, shows off the eyes nicely and the reflection on the water is great as well. :nod:
