Otters seem to have life figured out. They spend most of their days swimming, playing, and either looking for food or eating. Seriously. They eat a lot– as in they eat up to 25% of their body weight each day.
Plus, most of us would agree that they’re pretty darn adorable. And if you don’t think so, maybe it’s because you’ve never actually seen an otter.
Maybe you haven’t.
Here. Take a look:
But they’re a lot more than just super cute, whiskery faces.
For instance, did you know that some sea otters will spend their entire lives in water? Or that, as they age, their fur turns a silvery white, lending to the nickname “old men of the sea?” What about the fact that, because otters are normally difficult to observe in their natural habitats, scientists are now utilizing drones to learn more about them? How about that they can weigh up to 99 pounds, making them the largest members of the weasel family?
If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, or if you just really like otters, there’s a good chance you’ll do well on the quiz below. So, give it a shot, and when you’re done, make sure to let us know how you did in the comments below!
