He looks like he's wearing little rubber gloves.

Otters are jerks. Just ask shellfish. This otter deserves to cry for all the bad things he's done. But, despite the tears, he will show no true repentance.

Do you know why the clam got grounded?

For being shellfish.

I love the last picture. It looks like he's going to spit the watermelon back out.

I wouldn't get my hand too close to his mouth, if you know what I mean.

Funny, I thought they only had that expression while ripping apart human flesh.

I dunno, my face looks a lot like that if I eat watermelon rind.

You know how people say tomatoes used to be better before factory farming? Was there ever a time when watermelon was actually good.

Lil guy reminds me of the drawings of the stoats from Wind of the Willows, all squinty eyes and fangs.

Isn't that how every Bond villain looks after his evil plans are foiled?

In that first photo, he's seems to be yelling at another otter to stop pooping in front of him while he's "trying to eat over here!"

The last photo is his reaction to the other otter eating watermelon without first washing his paws.

Giant otters are called River Wolves in Spanish. Tells you what you need to know.

I swam with a giant otter (Pteronura brasiliensis). It was awesome. He liked to be dragged through the water around and around and around, by a finger hooked just behind his canine teeth.

Hate to break it to you, but, yeah, they really, really are.

I once saw a giant otter drown a caiman. Giant otters are kind of terrifying.

Well, *I* saw an otter shoot a man in Reno just to watch him die. And steal his abalone.

When I was a kid we once spent Christmas at my aunt's place in Idaho. She had a volcanically heated pool and one of the local river otters had made it his winter residence. He seemed to love play in the water, jump out to dive into a snowbank and throw snow everywhere and then back into the water.

Yes. In the summer in Central Asia. I think I ate more watermelon in two months than I had consumed my entire life previously.

The black circles around his eyes make him look like Pope Benedict.

That last photo was fantastic. It made Mrs A's morning.

Have you people never grown watermelon? Watermelon is fucking delicious.

Also you can spit the seeds at people.
