Sea otters eat A LOT of food. In fact, sea otters eating is what they’re best known for—besides being extremely cute. From urchin to crab, worm and clam, octopus and abalone, sea otters eat over 100 species of marine invertebrate in the wild.
And here at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, our resident sea otters get to practice their hunting skills thanks to our Sea Otter Aquarists. Learn from staffer Chris and his otterly pawesome friend Selka about what sea otters eat in the first episode of our new series: Sea Otter 101!
