The Raft

Kodiak Island

A raft of sea otters (Enhydra lutris) rests during the mid-day. It has a period of foraging and eating in the morning, starting about an hour before sunrise, then rests or sleeps in mid-day. Foraging resumes for a few hours in the afternoon and subsides before sunset, and a third foraging period may occur around midnight. Photo © copyright by Robert Faucher.
