When was the last time I did a tutorial on an animal that lives in the sea but often floats on the surface? Never, that's when. I have never drew or submitted a tutorial on "how to draw a sea otter", step by step. That is why I wanted to jump on a request that was suggested I make a tutorial on the sea otter. These water bearing animals are related to the weasel family, and they can commonly be found along the coasts of the Pacific Ocean in North America and Asia. Sea otters spend most of their living day in the water and when I say most, I mean they eat, sleep, play, mate, give birth, and obviously hunt in the water. They will however come out once in a while to have a rest or a nice nap on land. This animal species sometimes gets confused with the beaver, but as you can see they are much differnt than the wood munching rodent. Sea otters have webbed feet, and a fur that is water repellent. Their ears and nostrils also have the ability to close off when they swim under water as they hunt for their next meal. Now because they practically live in the water, their diet consists of crabs, fish, squid, oysters, and even octopuss. You will sometimes see the sea otter with a rock resting upon their chest to stay prepared for the next time they will need to crack open a shell for a tasty snack. When they relax in the water, they swim but float at the same time. Have you ever seen that Giecko comercial when the otter is just floating on the water eating a claim? Well that is exactly how they really live their day to day lives. To sum things up, I think that the otter are interesting mammals, even if they remind me of oversized water rats. Have fun learning "how to draw an otter". When you are all done with this tutorial you can work on getting another lesson done on something else. Thanks a bunch guys for viewing this lesson.
