Favorite thing: Nature may have its perfect weight loss specimen in this cute yet ferocious hunter, the Sea Otter. Upwards of one million of these animals existed at one time, although the numbers are closer to 1000 now, as many people hunted these animals for their fur. This fur was very valuable because of its density, known to be 8-9 times more dense than others. This is what keeps the otter in such tremendous shape, since the dense fur allows for less body fat on the otter. This does come at a price though, because with the lack of fat, the otters metabolism is so high that it has to hunt as much as 5 hours a day to keep satiated. The Sea otter is officially on the endangered species list, so please only take photographs!
