Rare sighting of sea otter off Laguna Beach
LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. (KABC) -- A group of whale-watchers caught a glimpse of a sea otter on Monday, a rare sighting in Southern California.
The curious otter came up to the "Dana Pride," and spectator took a photograph.
A marine biologist says it's been more than 30 years since a sea otter has been seen in the region.
Just a couple of months ago, another sea otter was spotted in San Diego at Zuniga Point Jetty.
In California, they're most common in such places as Morro Bay and Monterey.
