In Real Life

Sea Otters are the smallest marine mammal and are most closely related to the River Otter. Northern Sea Otters are endemic to shore waters that range from Hokkaido, Japan up towards eastern Russia and the Pacific coastal areas of the United States, ranging from Alaska to southern California. Although the Northern Sea Otters are endemic to these regions, 90% of their population inhabits the Alaskan shorelines. Northern Sea Otters are benthic (bottom-dwelling) and eat urchins, abalone, mussels, clams, crabs, snails, as well as over 40 types of other sea species.

Northern Sea Otters are not territorial with fighting between other otters are an extreme rarity. Only the adult Otters establish territories in which they patrol constantly to exclude other male otters. Females however are permitted to move freely between all male otter territories. Male otters reach sexual maturity at 4-6 years while the females don't breed until 2-5 years; the females continue breeding until 20 years of age. Otters breed once a year with the majority of the pups being born in the spring with only 1 pup to 1 female. The gestation period of female otters hasn't been able to be recorded reliably in that it is highly variably due to delayed implementation of a fertilized egg. A Northern Sea Otters pup will stay with the mother for 3-6 months, the majority of that time being spent on her stomach floating until it can learn to swim.

In the case of Northern Sea Otters their predators include a range animals as well as environmental interference's. Their recorded predators include Killer Whales, Great White Sharks, Bald Eagles, Coyotes, and Brown Bears; with the majority of their population decline coming from Killer Whales. Environmental dangers to Northern Sea Otters are mainly man-made which the biggest one being oil spills but can include pollutants, infectious disease, recreational and industrial interference, fishery by-catching, and illegal poaching and harvesting.
