Even if you are not an environmental activist you must admit that Sea Otters are one of the most adorable animals on the planet and should be protected. While vacationing in Seward, Alaska this past August I was lucky enough to come across this little otter and watch it for almost an hour while it was hunting, grooming and, eventually, sleeping. I saw it dive time after time, and each time it would come up with a new delicious treat. It would float on its back and gobble down whatever it brought up, sometimes using a rock to open it. I have to say it was amazing and a bit creepy to see it devour a star fish in just a few minutes. Clearly, the sea otter has some sharp teeth. After hunting, while it was grooming the otter flipped over and i could see air bubbles in each arm pit. It was so cute!
