sea otters camouflage by wrapping themselves with the kelp
Sea otters do not eat kelp but they do live in the kelp forests. They use the deep cover as protection from predators. Sea otters eat the red sea urchin that will destroy a kelp forest if left unchecked.
One of kelp's predators is the sea urchin. Sea otters eat sea urchins, that is how they help kelp. (that rhymes)
Sea otters tangle themselves up in the kelp, while they sleep, so they do not float away
Otters help kelp, by keeping sea urchin numbers down, allowing the kelp forests to grow.
no they do not
sea otters usually hide among sea kelp or on or in amongst rocks.
Sea otters live in kelp forests in groups called rafts various places.
Sea Urchins Sea Otters,and many crusteseans live in Kelp Forests.
Fish, birds, octopi, and sea otters eats Kelp crabs.
Killer whales eat kelp from time to time. Other animals that eat kelp include sea otters and sea urchins.
Sea Urchins eat kelp forests, but sea otters help the forest because they eat the sea urchins.
It Swims Away Or Hides In Kelp
It feeds on the organisms that feed on the kelp
A Sea otters niche in the ocean is to keep kelp forests healthy. they do this by feeding on the animals that graze on kelp.
Sea Otters eat abalone which eat the kelp. Kelp provides a safe fish nursery for fry.
Kelp acts as an anchor point for a sea otter. A sea otter will wrap itself with stands of kelp, which in turn stops the otter from floating out to sea, when taking a nap. And eat
Sea otters eat various species that consume kelp. Kelp forests are essential habitats for many marine organisms near the Pacific coast of North America. Without the sea otter, these species, such as sea urchins, consume enough kelp to nearly eliminate the kelp forest altogether. This is currently damaging many marine ecosystems. Hopefully, sea otter populations will recover and eat enough of the urchins to save the kelp forests. In the meantime, we must do what we can to protect the sea otters.
Sea otters and sea urchins are two examples.
The kelp uses the sea urchins to keep it in check, from growing too much. However, the sea urchins eat kelp, so they destroy kelp growth. Also, sea otters eat urchins, and they live in the kelp forest.
Many things live in a kelp forest or kelp bed. Such things include seahorses, sea otters, sea urchins,and many types of fish and crustaceans.
Sea otters mostly like to eat sea urchins but also mussels, mollusks, and some other kelp forest invertebrates.
they control the population of sea urchin which helps kelp grow.
Sea otters' niche is to keep kelp forests and the like healthy.
