[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The marine otter (= Lutra felina) or Chungungo is distributed along the Pacific coast from northern Peru along the Chilean coast to Cape Horn and Isla de Los Estados in Argentina. It inhabits marine areas exposed to heavy seas, strong wind, and a high diversity of rock fishes, molluscs, and crustaceans. Only rarely found in freshwater habitats.

Especie con gran requerimiento de hábitat, relacionándose principalmente a sitios de litoral rocoso con fuerte exposición a las olas y con rocas del tipo paredón o acantilados y una franja con vegetación que permita el acceso imperceptible al agua, asociándose con bancos de algas utilizadas principalmente como refugio y sustento de su ecología trófica
Se distribuye a lo largo de la costa del Océano Pacifico, desde el norte del Perú (6ºS) hasta el Cabo de Hornos (56ºS) en Chile, especialmente en Estrecho de Magallanes e Islas de los Estados; presente en poblaciones aisladas en Argentina. Los registros disponibles más septentrionales en Chile son los correspondientes a Mejillones (19º 48`S) y los más meridionales a Isla Grevy (55º33`S).

I hope it can see further generations for its famil and species in the future. It is a unique and nice mammal for lots to see tough.
