    The otter, with the possibility of 1 million hairs per square inch, has the thickest fur coat of any animal. This coat insulates them from the cold because they do not have a layer of fat or blubber to keep them warm. Most other marine animals have this protective layer of fat to keep them alive in the frigid and icy water. Otters have a high metabolic rate and spend much of their time in the water, so the thick fur coat is an absolute necessity.
