Sea Otter Eating an Innkeeper Worm
February 17, 2012 Leave a comment
This sea otter is eating an Innkeeper worm (known locally as a weenie worm). The worm looks remarkably like a hot dog! A sea otter floats on its back and uses its stomach like a table. Sometimes a sea otter uses a rock to crack open tough shells. When diving, sea otters store food in skin folds under their legs while they continue to hunt.
