What mammals live in salt water?
Whales and porpoises live their entire lives in salt water. Manatees inhabit tidal zones; they can spend a lot of time in salt water, but they must find fresh water to drink. Seals, sea lions and walruses are considered semi-aquatic. They are born on land and only spend part of their time in the water. Sea otters can walk on land, but are usually born in the ocean and spend all their time there. Marine otters are a similar species; little is known of their behavior, but they do seem to spend more time on land than sea otters.
