Sea Otter
Enhydra lutris

This is the first sea otter I have seen this close to town. It looks like it has had its nose chewed on. Sea Otter mating can be a little violent, so it may be that this otter has recently been involved in breeding activities.

Location: Near Mouth of Indian River, Sitka, Alaska

Previous: Black-legged Kittiwakes (Rissa tridactyla)
Next: Harbor Seal (Phoca vitulina)
