About Sea Otter
The Sea Otter is the only otter species that spends it entire life at sea. However, they do often feed on shore. They stay close to the coast in beds of giant kelp. Sea otters feed on crabs and fish. When they eat clams, they float on their backs and smash open the shells with a stone. Their bodies have adapted well to life at sea. To stay warm and dry, their fur holds a layer of air so their skin never gets wet. Sea otters do not have a layer of blubber to keep them warm like other sea animals do.
