Plunk a penny on a sea otter and you cover about 250,000 hairs - sea otters have the thickest fur in the world. In Welcome to the World of Otters, you'll find amazing facts just like this one on every page. Diane Swanson reveals how river otters dive without a splash and how snoozing sea otters anchor themselves with kelp. Did you know that river otters often play hide and seek in the snow? Under water and on land, this is an exciting look at the splashing, diving, sliding life of otters.
Includes a table of contents, index, sidebars, and full of extraordinary photography throughout.
