Species: California Sea Otter | Location: Elkhorn Slough (Monterey Bay), USA
California sea otters were once hunted to near extinction. Numbers have rebounded, but they still remain an endangered species. Elkhorn Slough, in the Monterey Bay area, is a safe haven to over a hundred of these amazing animals. I got this photo while kayaking in the slough.
