what kind of food do otters eat
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.
This depends on the species of otter, generally speaking otters have a high metabolic rate and require large amounts of food to generate body heat, river otters eat 15% to 20% of their body weight every day, sea otters can eat as much as 25lb. (11kg.) or 25% to 30% of their weight a day. Please see related link below!
