More Abalone ============>>>>
Abalone are a favorite food for some marine species including sea otters. Otters are one of the few tool-using mammals (besides man) and they are known to carry a rock that they use to crack the shell of the abalone underwater so they can remove it from its substrate. They then use the rock, at the surface, to crack the shell off and eat the yummy abalone. An occasional shark or large fish may be able to get small abalone off the rock for a meal, but, in general the abalone is well protected by its strong shell. For thousands of years the abalone has existed with its natural marine predators.
