This article is about the current version of DF.
Note that some content may still need to be updated.

Not to be confused with river otters.
A small marine mammal with a long body. They enjoy eating shellfish and other small animals.

Sea otters are small amphibious creatures found in temperate oceans, where they appear in groups of 5-10 individuals. While carnivorous, they are benign and will generally not pose a threat to anything. A newborn sea otter is called a pup.

Sea otters can be captured in cage traps and trained into cheap exotic pets. Being as heavy as dogs and three times the weight of a river otter, they give a decent amount of returns when butchered, making them a potential base for a meat industry.

Some dwarves like sea otters for their playfulness, their fluffy faces and their simple tool use.

Admired for their fluffy faces.

Some sea otters have been reported as distracting human fishers in order to help lost Fish.
