Southern River Otter [Chepu River, Chiloé Island, Chile] | November 2010

The Southern River Otter (Lontra provocax), locally known as 'Huillin', is an otter species occurring in southern Chile and adjacent regions of Argentina. This medium-sized otter can grow up to 2.5 ft (70 cm) long, with a tail being about 16 inches (40 cm); its skin is dark-brown on the top and has a lighter cinnamon color on its underside.

On November 14 2010, while leading a group of Wildlife Travel (UK) on Chiloé Island, I had the priviledge of photographying three individuals of this rare and endangered mammal. The sightings took place at the pristine Chepu River, located in the north-western part of the main island of this archipelago of southern Chile. Our group has also additional sightings at the private Tepuhueico Park, also located in the main island, close to the homonimous lake.

More resources on the River Otter here.
