A member of the Weasel family, the Sea Otter is all about two things: eating and grooming. It must eat 25 to 40 percent of its weight daily to keep up with its high metabolism, and can dive up to 330 feet to forage. It's one of the few mammals that uses implements such as rocks to knock Shellfish and Abalone shells from rocks, and pry or hammer them open. Grooming is vital because they need clean fur to absorb air and keep themselves warm. That means when they're not eating, they're cleaning! The Sea Otter can live its entire life without leaving the water, and has been known to sleep holding paws, to keep from drifting apart.
