NAME THAT ANIMAL!

In best cryptozoological tradition, it’s kind of blurry and far away… The human in the picture is called Nicole Duplaix, and the photo’s from her website, so using Google would be a dead easy way of IDing the beast, but that is called CHEATING. So straight answers please, no peeking.

    Looks like a giant otter.

    Yeah, I was going to say giant otter.

    Wasn’t there a recent programme (Natural World, maybe?) that featured the woman in the photo with her subjects?

  3. Yeah I was gonna say that too. I saw one from a distance in Ecuador, and also have a grainy out of focus picture somewhere!

  4. Puijila. That, or Pteronura.

    Well done – it’s a giant otter, Pteronura brasiliensis, which from nose to tail can grow to nearly 2m in length. They now have a pair at Chester Zoo (in the old sea lion enclosure) and they are truly enormous. Learn more about them here:
