Paleontologists working in China have uncovered the fossilized remains of a previously unknown species of ancient otter. Weighing 110 pounds, these fearsome predators were among the largest otters to have ever lived.

The otter family dates back over 18 million years, but not much is known about these semi-aquatic creatures owing to the poor fossil record.
