CARNIVORE week 2 - Pteronura Brasiliensis (Giant River Otter)

Michele Melcher

Giant River Otter

The Giant River Otter is the largest member of the weasel family reaching up to six feet in length. It ranges across north-central South America, living mostly in and around the Amazon River and in the Pantanal.  Due to fur poaching in the 1950's and 60's it has been listed as endangered since 1999 with wild populations estimated at below 5000. It is the most social species of the weasel family, living in family groups of three to eight members.

Museum Quality Scan

The drawings have been professionally scanned by the historic Athenaeum of Philadelphia on their Cruse Scanner to capture every detail down to the finest hair in order to produce a print as close to the original work as possible.

Archival Print

A limited edition run of 50 hand signed and numbered print. Printed locally on archival paper by Stockbridge Fine Arts in Philadelphia PA, specialists in the production of custom fine art prints for museums and galleries worldwide.


Shipping included. Please allow 2 weeks from date of order for shipping. Your print will be carefully rolled and shipped to your location in a sealed cardboard tube. *Original art shipped flat by appropriate shipping service.

Mark your calendars! I'm am thrilled to the core to finally be able to tell you all about a new series that I have been working on behind the scenes for the past year. CARNIVORE is a collection of exquisitely detailed fine art illustrations. I'm not going to share too much about the work yet and ruin the surprise but think about the title and let that get your imagination going.

Beginning Wednesday, February 1st, a new piece will be released every week for at least 7 weeks. I am actively creating new work to add to the collection so that just a starting number. Limited edition, high quality, fine art prints as well as original art will be available for purchase in the shop upon each release. When they are gone, they are gone, so make sure that you don't miss out. Follow my Instagram account for weekly updates, launch times, sneak peek premiers and progress shots.

It's been really hard for me to be patient and keep this thing under wraps for so long. I'm so excited to be able to share it all with you soon. THANK YOU!
