Sea Otter, Homer, Alaska
We found this friendly sea otter in the Homer Spit Marina. It was napping for quite a while...we even heard it snoring. Occasionally, it would open its eyes to check us out, but then go right back to sleep. When it finally woke up, it immediately started eating, first some clams and then a crab. It used the classic otter technique of placing a rock on its chest and banging the shells against it to break them open...a very cool thing to watch.
