      • The sea otter eats seaweed, clams, scallops, abalone, crabs, sea cucumbers, mussels and fish.
      • Sea otters also eat squid, octopus, marine worms, limpets and sea stars.
    • Food Habits
      • The sea otter eats 3 hours a day. Sea otters are nocturnal when looking for food. It eats 25% of its weight every day. Isn’t it amazing that they eat so much?

    • Why is it Endangered?
      • The sea otter is endangered for many reasons. One reason is because of over-hunting. Another reason is because of oil drilling.

      • They have done protected waters and C.I.T.E.S is a project helping endangered species.
      • Also they are showing people that hunting is SUPER WRONG.
    • Conclusion
      • My conclusion is that sea otters really are interesting. At first I thought they were a dumb animal, but I found out that they’re the smartest marine mammal known.
    • My Predictions For The Future
      • I predict that the geographic range of sea otters will grow and they will NOT be threatened anymore.
