I OTTER get back to work...
At the request of the lovely Zoe M., today is Otter Day! They are my favorite aquatic mammals. I'm very jealous of their eating habits- to survive some must eat 15% of their body weight every day (sea otters have to eat 20-25% of their body weight!). That means if I were like a sea otter, I'd have to eat 30-40 pounds of food a day! Mmmmm. (I guess that would get expensive though...) Most species of otters hunt for 3-5 hours a day; nursing mothers hunt for 8 hours. Check out the links section of Land of Cute- someone out there has created a Land of Cute otter-style. Enjoy!
Don't forget, we still have one more day of random week! Send in your submissions!
