Otters use their sense of touch at least as much as their eyes. Their long whiskers help them detect vibrations in murky waters, and they use their sensitive paws to locate and capture prey under water.
Otters in the wild must eat up to one-quarter of their body weight a day just to stay alive. They spend about eight hours a day foraging and feeding.

The baby is not able to dive until it is
nearly 2 months old.
If the sea otter's fur becomes covered with oil, it will not be able to float and keep warm.
A family of river otters may include 3 or 4 young, while the sea otter usually has a single pup, born in the water. The river otter makes a tunnel into the side of a river bank. At the end of the tunnel is a den lined with grass. A river otter's tail is much longer than the sea otter's . The tail is about 2/3 the length of its head and body. River otters do not float on their backs. River otters swim in rivers, streams, and oceans. They often come on shore.

Sea Otter
Enhydra lutris Sea Otters are playful animals that spend almost all their time in the sea. They eat, sleep, and even have their babies in the water. In the daytime sea otters float on their backs eating Abalone, their favorite food. To open the Abalone shell they place a small rock on their chest and smash the shell against it. Sea otters are one of the few mammals, beside humans, that use tools. They will use strands of kelp to tie themselves into the kelp beds for a secure night's sleep. They love to frolic with other otters and seals. Unlike seals and walrus, sea otters have no blubber to keep them warm in the cold arctic waters. Air trapped in their fur keeps them warm and bouyant. Oil spills can damage this fine fur and cause the otter to get very cold and die. That is why volunteers cleaned the sea otters so carefully after the oil spills in Alaska. Sea otters also faced great dangers from hunters who wanted their valuable coats. They were hunted so heavily in the 18-19th Centuries that they had to be placed on the U.S. government endangered species list. Now the populations have come back to a large extent, but conservationists would like to continue to protect them. Fishermen would like them off the endangered species list in order to protect the abalone harvest.

There are, in fact, two kinds of sea otters, Southern sea otters, which live moreto the south than Alaskan sea otters. sea otters love to explore new foods.





Species Profile: Sea Otter
Enhydra lutris
The sea Otter is perhaps the best known otters. When you think of an otter, most probably the first thing that comes to your mind is the cute, cuddily face of the Southern Sea Otter. There are, in fact, two kinds of Sea Otters, Southern Sea Otters, which live more to the south than Alaskan Sea Otters. Other than the distinction in size and habitat, they are very much alike.
Sea Otters are unique marine mammals in that they use tools such as rocks to open their prey such as the shells of abalone. These social otters float in rafts in the Pacific Ocean just offshore. They have extraordinarily dense fur to keep them warm and are the heaviest otter species.
Next: North American River Otter Galleries Bottom Size From the head to the body it is 550 mm. to 1300 mm., the tail is 125 mm. to 330 mm., making the total length from 675 mm. to 1630 mm. Now that is BIG! Sea Otters are the heaviest of all the otters, and with the males weighing up to 45 kg that is not hard to believe. Feet The Sea Otter has small fore paws that have no noticeable fingers. The back paws look a lot like flippers because of the webbed toes. When swimming underwater, the Sea Otter is a great navigator. The hind feet push the sea otter foward in great swoops, and the front paws pull it along. The paws do not look really sensitive or manipulative, but surprisingly they are quite agile. Sea Otters have short semi-retractable claws on their paws. The otters can rub, roll, pull, and twist with lots of strength. They are agile enough to take buttons, belts, rings, and things in pockets with ease that only comes from pickpockets. The Sea Otter will use its paws to stash food from the bottom of the ocean in baggy pockets of skin under its forelegs. Once back on the top, floating comfortably on its back and anchored to kelp, the Otter will retrieve the food, sometimes opening it with a rock on its belly, and enjoy its meal.

    Fast Facts
    Common Name: sea otter
    Class: Mammalia
    Order: Carnivora
    Family: Mustelidae
    Genus species: Enhydra lutris
    Status: Sea otters once lived along most of the coastal North Pacific Ocean. That was before fur traders hunted them for their thick, luxurious pelts. By the year 1900, sea otters were nearly extinct. Today they're protected. The California population is still smallabout 2,000 sea otters spread over only about 226 km (140 mi.) of central California coastline. California sea otters are listed as "threatened" under the Endangered Species Act.
    Fun Facts
    1. Two separate populations of sea otters live in North America: Alaska sea otters and California sea otters. 2. The sea otter's brown to black fur is the finest and densest of any animal fur. On a large animal, there an estimated 650,000 hairs per square inch. A sea otter relies on its fur to keep it warmit doesn't have blubber as other marine mammals do. Natural oils in a sea otter's fur repel water and trap tiny air bubbles, providing a layer of warm air between the otter's skin and the harsh elements of its environment. 3. Sea otters spend up to 48% of the daylight hours grooming their fur. They groom by rubbing fur with their forepaws. Their strong claws comb and rake the fur. Then they roll and whirl in the water to smooth their fur.

    Did you know...
    Historically, the sea otter was found from the northern coast of Japan up through the Kurile Islands and the Commander Islands; across the Aleutian Islands; and down the coasts of Alaska, Canada, and the western United States to central Baja California. In the mid-1700s Russian hunters began harvesting sea otters for their pelts. By the late 1700s the Russians were jointed by American and English fur traders. The 1800s saw large-scale otter harvesting and fur trading operations. Sea otters were nearly extinct by the turn of the century. Less than 2,000 otters remained. The International Fur Seal Treaty of 1911 stopped further exploitation of sea otters. Populations have gradually increased since then. Presently, the sea otter lives in shallow waters off Alaska and Aleutian Islands, the Commander Islands, and along the California coast from Santa Cruz to Point Conception.

    For many years, it appeared that the southern sea otter was destined to be a success story of endangered species, saved from the brink of extinction. After being rediscovered along the California coast in the 1930s, the population grew from only a few hundred beleaguered animals to nearly 2,400 individuals in 1995. But from that high, the species has declined, and today there are only 1,950 southern sea otters left alive. Sea otters are what scientists refer to as "keystone species," a term that refers to their functional role within their ecosystem. The feeding habits of the sea otter have a top-down effect on the marine ecosystem, meaning that their actions affect organisms lower in the food chain. Sea otters are also indicators of the health of that ecosystem. Scientists are not sure why sea otters are steadily declining along the California coast. The potential causes are disease, drowning in fishing gear, lack of food and habitat degradation. Research is desperately needed. Yet repeated federal budget cuts have eliminated money for even the most basic studies.
