Several shark teeth bites are visible here. Freshly dead female sea otter with shark bite is observed on Morro Strand State Beach, Morro Bay, CA, 18 Feb. 2009, and retrieved by CA Fish and Game's Mike Harris (805) 772-1135 for necropsy in Santa Cruz. To report a dead mammal call 805-772-1135. Michael "Mike" L. Baird, Canon SD950 point-and-shoot snapshot. Flash compensation achieved on some images in this series by covering part of the flash with gaffer's tape.

 

Mike Harris, the Fish & Game guy, said (paraphrased) that sharks do not eat the otters - but that he's had to pick up several with bites the past week or so - that the whites like to chomp and bump them.
