Sea otters wrap themselves in kelp so they don’t drift on the ocean while they sleep. Sometimes mother sea otters even wrap their babies in kelp to hold them in place while they hunt!

About Pam
Richard and Pam lived in the San Francisco Bay Area 14 years (1987-1999 and 2008-2011). They lived in Florida 13 years previously, until returning in July 2011 to present. They hope their photography will encourage you to get out and discover nature's beauty in your own backyard, parks, and wild places.
