In the early nineteen hundreds Sea Otters were decimated for their prized pelts. By 1911 they were presumed extinct throughout their entire range, but a small group had survived along the central California coast. Today, about 2000 are believed to inhabit the California coast and they continue to repopulate their historical range.
They live in shallow coastal waters among kelp beds and areas rich with shellfish.

The sea otter (Enhydra lutris, Linnaeus 1758) is the only member of the genus Enhydra sea otters were exterminated from Near Island, westernmost of the



The biology of animals that have been traditionally hunted are usually well known. Throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries Enhydra lutris , the sea otter, was heavily exploited by man, prized universally for its exceptionally warm, sheik and tremendously valuable pelt. Subsequently, in order to maximize harvest yield, the human predatory machine studied sea otter biology intently. This cute, furry, charismatic species was so well hunted that it was extirpated along most of its historical range in North America. A second wave of study in sea otter biology was initiated at the beginning of the twentieth century in efforts to prevent the animal's extinction. Recent studies of E. lutris appear to emerge from all areas of science. Currently, numerous scientific papers are being published on many different scales in the disciplines of physiology, ecology, behaviour, pathology, and conservation of this animal. The resources utilized in the synthesis of this page represent a very minute fraction of the myriad of past and current publications dedicated to Enhydra lutris Systematics
The sea otter ( Enhydra lutris , Linnaeus 1758) is the only member of the genus Enhydra (Fig.1). It is the largest member of the family Mustelidae which includes approximately 70 species; the otter is also the smallest marine mammal and is the only one in the order Carnivora. Based on morphological differences in color, body and skull sizes, three sub-species of sea otters have been proposed historically:

A: There are so many different seal species in the world that its difficult to say what they can eat in a day. The harbour seals at the Vancouver aquarium eat an average of 8.1 percent of their body weight each day. That's a lot of food! If a 100 pound human had to eat eight percent of his weight each day it would mean consuming about eight pounds of food. The average lifespan of all pinnipeds (seals, sea lions and walruses) is about 15-25 years.

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.

The lively sea otters on exhibit came to the aquarium as stranded pups. They don’t have the skills to survive in the wild. You can watch aquarists feed and train our sea otters during our daily Sea Otter Program at 10:30, 1:30 and 3:30. Training keeps our otters mentally and physically stimulated; it also makes working with the otters safer for us and less stressful for them. One favorite otter toy is called a "food tube." Trainers freeze food inside, then it's up to the otters to figure out how to get it out. While some marine mammals have a thick layer of fat to keep out the cold, a sea otter's wrapped in the world's densest fur. On the second floor of the exhibit, you can watch sea otters at the surface, while first-floor windows give an underwater view. The otters like to crunch on ice cubes which is somewhat like having to crack through the hard shells of the food they usually eat. Our exhibit otters are sometimes behind the scenes serving as companions and surrogate mothers to rescued otter pups. Our Sea Otter Research and Conservation program's goal is to discover why California's otter population is in crisis and how we can help.

A lot of different activities go on in our sea otter exhibit. We feed out otters four times a day but you might not recognize the food at first. We often put the food into toys, like food tubes, that stimulate the otters' natural behavior of pounding and working to get food out of shells.
Our aquarists also teach the otters behaviors, like walking onto a scale or into a kennel, or holding a target with their paws to focus their attention and keep still.
Otter Time Out
You might not always see the same otters on exhibit. Toola and Joy, two unreleasable females acting as surrogate mothers in the Sea Otter Research and Conservation (SORAC) program take turns on exhibit. And our exhibit otter, Rosa, is sometimes behind the scenes as a surrogate mother raising SORAC pups.

Kids - Your Source for Otter
Fun, Facts, and Faces If you are looking for information on otters, you've come to the right place! Otternet has a wealth of interesting facts on otters. Our 40 + pages will help you with getting the information you need. Otternet is the largest resource on the Internet for otter information. We have in-depth species profiles giving you tons of information on all 13 species of otter. We also have habitat overviews for the five continents otters live on; there you can find which otters live in each country, what the threats to them are, and their conservation status.
Otternet was formed to help educate people on otters - providing a wealth of facts not found anywhere else on the web, including a comprehensive Links page. Many species of otter are either threatened or endangered. Otters, once sought after for their fur, are making a comeback in some areas. Although there is still the threat of illegal poaching, otters are faring better than earlier this century due to the assistance of many organizations throughout the world. Inhabiting five of the continents of the world, Otters are truly amazing mammals. Otters are unique in many ways. For instance, Otters are the only marine mammals to have fur instead of blubber. There are thirteen species of otters alive today. There used to be fourteen, but the fourteenth otter, Maxwell's otter, is presumed extinct due to draining of their waters to perform genocide in Iraq. Otters are very smart; they are one of only a handful of tool using mammals. Sea Otters use rocks to pry abalone off rocks and to break open shells.

Sea otters are sleek, furry, streamlined marine mammals that live along rocky Pacific Ocean coasts, bays, and kelp beds. They are found from the coast of California through Alaska and along the eastern coast of Russia to northern Japan. This type of weasel spends most of its time in the water, where it is fast and graceful; it is slow and awkward on land. The scientific name is Enhydra lutris (Genus species). The sea otter is a protected species because of previous overhunting (they were once hunted for their thick, dense fur). Anatomy : Sea otters are up to about 4 feet (1.3 meters) long and weigh from 45 to 82 pounds (20-37 kilograms). They have webbed hind feet which they use to swim; the forefeet are smaller. The claws are semi-retractible. The ears and nostrils close when the otter is underwater. Sea otters sleep and rest on their backs, usually anchored in a kelp (seaweed) bed. Fur : Sea otters are kept warm in the cold Pacific Ocean by their dense fur and high metabolism; they are the only marine mammal that has no layer of insulating fat. Sea otters have the densest fur of any mammal; the coat has over half a million hairs per square inch. Careful grooming with the forepaws keeps the fur waterproof. Oil spills cause the fur to lose its waterproof quality, causing the sea otter to get hypothermia, usually killing it.
