Guest Posted May 5, 2006 Share Posted May 5, 2006 Sea otter fur is MUCH finer than river otter fur. The difference in quality is astounding. Let me elaborate. Sea otter fur is black on the surface, and is sparsely covered with long, very soft, glistening guard hairs. The underfur is a beautiful, glowing, golden-brown color. It is the densest mammalian fur; it feels like the softest, most luxurious silk velvet. Sea otter fur is puffy looking. River otter fur is usually dark brown, but can come in milk chocolate color. The short guard hairs are very numerous and coarse and shiny. The underfur is super soft. River otter fur is sleek and flat. Vince Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
