Pictured: The otter with the piranha.
A hungry otter emerges from the water in a victorious leap after winning a battle with a deadly piranha.
The otter was not fazed by the dangerous fish as it took a huge chunk out of its body in a fast-flowing river.
The South American male giant river otter then finds a remote place on the bank to enjoy its lunch.
Wildlife photographer Pete Oxford, from Torquay, Devon, captured the dramatic moment the piranha swam into the otter's path in the Karanambu Trust in Rupununi, Guyana. SEE OUR COPY FOR MORE DETAILS.
