Sea Otter Hearing

Odin was an adult male sea otter, born in the wild in 2003. Odin stranded as a young pup at a few weeks of age and was successfully released to the wild. In 2008, Odin returned to rehabilitation and was eventually deemed non-releasable. Odin was placed with our program to participate in several long-awaited studies of sea otter sensory biology. His first task was a behavioral assessment of aerial and underwater hearing sensitivity.
