Sea Otter tracks


Tracks are rarely seen because this is the most aquatic of the pawed mammals and spends nearly all of its time in the water. Five toes on all four feet. Hind feet are elongated and webbed, much like flippers, with nonretractable claws, leaving fanshaped tracks 5 to 6 inches long. Forepaws are rounder, leaving dotlike tracks that are about 3 inches long, which may show only four toes. Nonretractable claws on hind feet, but retractable claws on forepaws.
