Sea Otter is an animal that was first discovered in 1751 by Georg Steller. They are the heaviest member of the weasel family with an average weight of about 99 lbs. There are 13 species of otters and most of them are on the endangered list. The population of otter is decreasing day by day and that is very unfortunate information for us. So it is our request to all the associations and governments all over the world to take some initiatives to save this beautiful animal. It has been found that the sea otter’s only marine predators are humans, killer whales and great white sharks.
Sea otters are seen diving under the water for food and hunting but actually the new born pups can’t sink or dive under water. A very interesting fact about these animals is that they have pockets under their arms and that is natural. Sea otter is also the only marine mammal animal without a layer of blubber or fat. But the teeth of the otters are strong enough to bite through the spines of a Sea Urchin. Now you will just get amazed to know that a wild sea otter eat 25% or more of their body weight a day. That is almost equal to 12 pounds of sea food.
Do you know that Zoroastrians thought that otters are the dogs of the sea and they always helped keeping the water purified. Even Zoroastrians had strict rules forbidding the killing of otters. So it can be surely guessed out that Zoroastrians thought that otters are a sacred animal. Now in the whole animal kingdom, they have the thickest fur of any mammal. Otters have almost 1 million hairs per square inch. Now the most interesting fact that will really amaze you is that otters are one of the few animals that use tools. They mainly use rocks but also seen using soda bottles and also cement blocks.
So sea otters are really something very interesting but hardly we all know about these facts about them.
