Sea Otter raft

Sea Otters (Enhydra lutris), Moss Landing Harbor, Monterey County, California - 27 December 2012. I counted forty sleeping and grooming themselves in the morning sun here today. From what I can glean from a quick look at my reference books and the internet, these rafts are often single-sex groupings and the white-headed individuals are probably the older otters.
