Sea otter

The sea otter (Enhydra lutris) is a marine mammal native to the coasts of the northern and eastern North Pacific Ocean. Adult sea otters typically weigh between , making them the heaviest members of the weasel family, but among the smallest marine mammals. Unlike most marine mammals, the sea otter's primary form of insulation is an exceptionally thick coat of fur, the densest in the animal kingdom. Although it can walk on land, the sea otter is capable of living exclusively in the ocean.

It is important that domesticated animals that are going to live in the wild be prepared. Allowing them to swim in the tub for example is a great way to push that. Making them hunt for their own food is another good way to do this as well.

It is amazing how specific ecosystems work. The animals are contributing to the health of the ocean just by doing their natural activities.
