Northern sea otter (captive)

Dressed in a dense suit of fur—a square inch of skin may hold as many as one million hairs—the northern sea otter (Enhydra lutris kenyoni) scoffs at the blubbery hides other marine mammals put on to keep warm. But its handsome coat nearly meant extinction when, in the eighteenth century, the Russian fur trade began targeting otters.
