how to sea otters clean themselves?

    After eating, sea otters wash themselves in the ocean. They clean their teeth, coat, and paws. It is important for them to keep their coats clean because it helps them remain waterproof and insulated against the cold.

    Sea otters are constantly grooming.  Unlike other marine mammals, otters do not have blubber for insulation.  Their fur traps small air bubbles close to their skin to provide insulation.  They are constantly cleaning their fur, usually washing much like humans with their paws.  If their fur is not kept clean, they run the risk of becoming hypothermic and dying.
