Sea Otter, Asilomar State Beach, 2009.

I was involved in a long phone conversation about something pretty intense; as I plunked myself down on a rock, I looked up, and there, no more than thirty feet in front of me, was this sea otter, smacking something (a crab?) repeatedly on his belly. Otters are a tool using animal; if you look closely, you can see the rock that he pounds hard-shelled animals on to extract his food.
