A Stone to Play With

The Sea Otters are tool users. They will swim on their backs and crack open shells and crabs by smashing them against a flat rock which is nestled on their abdomen just below their ribs. This otter had just finished eating a crab and was cleaning up its stone. It was facing away from me when it was cracking the crab open, so I don't have a good shot of that.
