I'm Currently Tied Up

If you need this Sea Otter, he is currently tied up at the moment.

 

This Sea Otter had just finished grooming (you can tell by how fluffy his face is), so that he could stay warm.  And now he is wrapping himself in kelp so that he can have a little nap.  They wrap themselves up in kelp in order to keep from drifting while they are asleep. It is incredible to watch how quickly and easily they are able to wrap themselves up, or unwrap themselves if needed.
