Yes a sea otter will eat a shark more often than a shark will eat it. Since otters have sharp teeth they can turn around while being chase by a shark and eat it. Otters and whales will eat sharks and they eat plants and algae which make them omnivores. That is why they are the top predators in the ocean food chain.
