The only time California Sea Otters seem to take a break from eating is when they’re resting in a raft. While sea otters will eat independently they will cluster together when they rest. This photo is a perfect example of this behavior. Joining in a raft provides them the ability to groom, sleep and warm their hands in feet.
As you finish eating your Thanksgiving dinner this weekend make like the Sea Otters… resting and catching up with family and friends. As I recall my grandfather always struck a similar pose after his Thanksgiving dinner except he’d rest in a Lazy-Boy chair in front of a wood console TV. Close enough!
Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!
