Close up view of a taxidermied sea otter which is posed to look as if it is swimming. Did You Know?
Sea otters have very dense fur made of stout guard hairs and fine under hairs. There are about 600,000 to 1,000,000 hairs per square inch. Sea otter pelts were so prized that they were almost hunted into extinction in the late eighteenth century.
