A Spectacular Creature of the Sea!
The California Sea Otter - This wonderful little creature is a pleasure
to behold. Every time we see an otter in the Morro Bay,
California habor it is a special event.
My wife and I love to walk along the embarcadero searching for the
playful otters. It is like they are waiting to show off their
skills of floating on their backs.
When we spot a Sea Otter my wife and I always love and
cherish the moment. It is weird how they make you feel. It
is as if they transmit a sense of relaxation. I don't know, maybe
we are weird but it is a soft feeling you get when you get to see an
otter in the bay.
I don't want to bore you with facts about the otter because you can
type in a search for otters and get all the information you
desire. What I want to do is let you know how it makes a person
feel when they observe this special little creature in the wild.
The otter reminds me of a cute little puppy. They
seem so playful and unaware there is a cruel world within their
reach. It is a fact the numbers of sea otters is falling due to
unknown causes. I am not sure if they are endangered but I
wouldn't doubt it if they were.

California Sea Otter is its natural environment.
