Gallery: 20101212 Sea Otter

I was a little surprised to see how close this Sea Otter (Enhydra lutris) was to the shore along Halibut Point Road. It was probably within 10 yards, apparently finding food to eat.

Note the open wound on this animal’s nose (click on image to see a somewhat larger version). Sea Otters have fairly rough courtship behaviors, including biting noses rather hard.
