Because they live in water that’s far too cold for their bodies, sea otters not only rely on their super fantastic fur for insulation, but they also need to conserve their energy for hunting and eating one quarter of their body weight in sea food each day. Enjoy this clip from off the coast of California’s Monterey Bay in episode 1 of Big Blue Live from the BBC.
