photographing and learning about wildlife
I think this is a Sea Otter, but please correct me if I'm wrong. I spotted this chap feeding (though I can't identify the food, he'd already mangled it up pretty well) just off the coast at Stanley Park, Vancouver pretty much underneath Lions Gate Bridge. Interestingly, I took a vast array of photos of the otter, and in every one his eyes appear to be closed. Can anyone tell me if this is common behaviour in these otters or whether this otter may be blind?
