Sea otters are small marine mammals that can be found along the Pacific coast of Canada. They have loose pouches of skin under their arms that function like pockets, which they use to store food and their favourite rocks to crack open tasty treats like mussels. Visit our Marine Life Encyclopedia to learn more about sea otters and other animals found along Canada’s coasts.
