00:00:15 The giant otter - six feet long, from tip to tail.
00:00:20 They're known in the Amazon as "wolves of the river".
00:00:25 For me, they hold a special fascination.
00:00:29 Loud, boisterous and aggressive. They're also loving,
00:00:33 affectionate and fiercely protective of their family...
00:00:42 ..even if it means risking their lives.
00:00:52 I first filmed giant otters when I was just a young cameraman
00:00:55 and got to know a very small, rather goofy, little cub, called Diablo.
00:01:04 I watched him grow up for almost a year and got very attached to him.
00:01:17 I've often wondered what happened to Diablo.
00:01:20 And now, I'm about to find out.
00:01:38 I last saw Diablo
00:01:39 13 years ago, in Manu National Park,
00:01:43 a remote part of the Peruvian Amazon.
00:01:47 Manu's incredible. The amount of life here blows my mind -
00:01:52 half a million species of insect,
00:01:55 10% of all the bird species in the world.
00:02:03 Nowhere can touch Manu for diversity.
00:02:10 It's a long way from home, back in Britain.
00:02:17 My name's Charlie and I've been completely obsessed with otters
