About Giant Otters

Giant river otters (Pteronura brasiliensis) remain endangered throughout their range. Recently, thanks to increased research and coordination efforts, our knowledge of this species in the wild and in captivity has improved remarkably since it was first studied in 1976.


This website was created in 2004 to assemble as much data as possible in a downloadable format (See Bibliography) so that students and researchers without access to large libraries could have access to the most important articles on Giant otters. The Giant Otter Bibliography is updated regularly with new titles as they appear.
