Transcript of All About Otters


Tail
The otter's tail can be up to a foot long. When on the surface, the tail can be used as a rudder and paddle. It can also be utilized as a defense mechanism. When underwater, it is used as a propeller.

Ears
The Sea Otters ears are located high on its head, so the otter can swim nearly submerged and still hear the outside world, which is helpful against predators.
Food Pouch
The Sea otter has very movable wrinkled skin. Due to this the sea otter can store food inside the underarms of it's front two legs.(Arm pits)
Jawbone
The Sea Otters Jawbone is strong and powerful. This helps the otter break through the shell of a crustacean or a sea urchin to get the food inside.

All About Otters
Head to Tail
Our projects is on otters, and specifically on the bodily features. The body of an otter, over millions of years, has adapted to an otter's everyday life.
And without these adaptations, otters may not be able to survive.

Eyes
Sea otters have amazing eyesight. The can see above water well. They also can see perfectly clear underwater like alligators and crocodiles.
Fur
Whiskers
Fur, yes fur, is what keeps otters warm. This is so, because an otter's hair particles are so densely packed, that in just one square inch of an otters fur, there are more than 1,000,000 individual hairs. This is about 900,000 thousand more hairs than on a human head! Also, their fur, with proper conditioning and grooming is completely waterproof and insulated.
Paws
Hind Flippers
Sea otters are one of the worlds best swimmers. This is made possible because of its powerful hind legs and fine motor skills. While floating on the surface, an otter use these legs to stay afloat and move around. And when in a hurry, an otter will swim on its stomach. These legs are always helpful when an otter is underwater. Their hind legs, when underwater, are used as propeller.
