California Wrap Sea Otter Style
One of the cool behaviors that we observed at Morro Bay was the Sea Otters wrapping themselves in seaweed to keep them from floating away while they slept. This one was almost totally wrapped up.
I lived in the Los Angeles area for a couple of years back in the late 80’s but wasn’t into wildlife photography in the film days, which was a shame. Jumped at the opportunity to go back to California to take photos of these awesome critters.
