Sea otter. Sea otter (Enhydra lutris) cracking open a clam by striking it on a rock resting on its belly. This mammal dives for crabs, clams, sea urchins, mussels, octopuses and fish, which it eats piece by piece while lying on its back. Shelled food is often cracked open using a rock, as here. Sea otters live in shallow water along coastlines. Their streamlined bodies are ideal for hunting in water.
