Sea Otters According to http://www.seaworld.org/animal-info/animal-bytes/animalia/eumetazoa/coelomates/deuterostomes/chordata/craniata/mammalia/carnivora/sea-otter.htm Oil spills cause many sea otters to die from the oil coating the fur and impairing their ability to stay warm, causing hypothermia and eventually death.

According to http://www.seaworld.org/animal-info/animal-bytes/animalia/eumetazoa/coelomates/deuterostomes/chordata/craniata/mammalia/carnivora/sea-otter.htm , sea otters live around the Pacific Ocean including Hokkaido in Japan. According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sea_otter, sea otters also live in an aquatic environment, which means that lots of their time is spent in the water. A typical female sea otter usually has one pup, but could possibly have twins. The pup learns to swim after a week, but it takes much longer for the pup to finally reach the ocean floor.
