Sea Otter

Sea Otter

Sea otters inhabit marine neritic and oceanic habitats, spending most of their time foraging below the canopy and eating, resting, and grooming at the water’s surface.

Sea otters inhabit marine neritic and marine oceanic habitats. They can be found in temperate coastal waters with rocky or soft sediment ocean bottom and live in offshore forests of giant kelp (Macrocystis pyrifera).

They spend most of their active time foraging below the canopy and eat, rest, and groom themselves at the water surface.
