Otters Boxed Notecards Sc1031
If you would understand the northern sea otter, study the giant kelp. The seventy thousand sea otters along North Americas Pacific coast do not eat kelp: they are strictly but indiscriminately carnivorous, eating everything from turban snails to Dungeness crabs. Famous users of tools, they grasp rocks to crack open mussels and to hammer abalones loose from the seabed. One of their foods is the sea urchin: sea urchins consume vast quantities of kelp: the more urchins otters swallow, the lusher grows the kelp forest.
