#southernseaotter Instagram photos and videos

Played with a beautiful #southernseaotter named Ruby at the #audubonaquariumoftheamericas yesterday in #neworleans . After about 10 minutes of interacting with her through the glass, she tried to give me her toy rings through the glass. When she lost interest in that I turned my phone on selfie mode and turned it around and she was entertained by that for a while. Such #amazing #inquisitive and huge animals. They are so beautiful!!!! These guys came from the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Sea Otter Program which treats and releases injured otters and finds homes for those that can’t be released #otters #seaotters #ottersofinstagram #louisiana #animals @auduboninstitute

Don't you just love sea otters? Did you know Sea Otters have built in pockets under their arms? They keep their favorite rock hidden in there so they can crack open clams and crab shells whenever they want.

It’s been a while since I last posted but that will be changing today! I’m going to try and be more frequent in spreading the love for our oceans and the animals that live in them ❤️ Sea otters are one of my favorite animals not just because of their cuteness (seriously though who could not love those faces) but because they are equally smart and social. Sea otters can be seen using rocks to crack open their favorite snack and even keeping their favorite rock in a small pouch underneath their arm! Sea otters are also extremely social and can be seen playing with one another and holding hands as they sleep so they do not drift away.
Sea otters have so much more to them then these cool facts. Let us work together to help protect them and their environment so we can learn all we can about this amazing animal. 🌎

Repost from @kaikoa.conservation What do you think of when you think of an Apex Predator? Lion? Bear? Shark?
Now you can add Sea Otter to that list. Not only are Sea Otters among the "top dogs" in the ocean, but they are a keystone species that is essential to the health of the pacific ocean.
In the mid 1900's Southern Sea Otters were hunted to near extinction (everyone thought they were extinct....that's why the hunters stopped). They are still endangered today, even though there are many groups that work tirelessly to restore this species.
Do your part to #SaveTheOcean and #SaveOtters by not buying any #OtterFur or #OtterPelt products - the otters need it more than we do.

It's almost Friday! This otter is clearly resting up for its big weekend plans. You otter do that too.
In actuality, if you look closely, can you see that red thing on the back flipper of this otter? That's one of the flipper tags used by the @montereybayaquarium to identify and track southern sea otters in the Monterey Bay. It's always cool to come across some ongoing conservation science while exploring the bay by kayak! (Side note: This photo was taken from my kayak with a telephoto lens. Please always be respectful of ocean wildlife and keep a safe distance—it's the law! If an otter is disturbed, not only is it stressful on the animal but it could also cause them to catch hypothermia from diving unexpectedly, and no one wants that! Enjoy the cuteness, just at a distance 🙃) #SeaOtterAwarenessWeek #conservation #science #conservationwin! #seaotter #southernseaotter #otter #Monterey #MontereyBay #MontereyBayAquarium #montereybaynationalmarinesanctuary #PacificGrove #hopkinsmarinestation #California #nationalmarinesanctuary #optoutside #kayak #kayaking #adventure #ocean #wild #wildlife #wildcalifornia #wildlifephotography #nature #naturelovers #naturephotography #naptime #adorable #cuteandfuzzy

Synonym(s): #MustelaLutra Linnaeus, 1758
Taxonomic Notes: Three regional subspecies have been confirmed by Cronin et al.

Sea otters live in shallow coastal waters off the northern Pacific. Their historic range stretched from Japan, along the coast of Siberia and the Aleutian Chain and down the Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, Oregon and California coast to Baja California. Currently sea otters can be found in Canada, Russia, Japan, California and Washington, but the majority of all wild sea otters are found in Alaskan waters.
