There aren't a ton of aquatic mammals in the world but there are definitely a few fun semi-aquatic ones - those burly beasts that are as at home splashing about in the surf as they are just lounging in the sun for a while. It's that kind of duality that really makes them interesting. They're not bound to one environment or the other like so many animals are. They walk or swim in two worlds and it always seems like they're having a lot of fun doing it. Seals, otters, and bears are three creatures that make it seem like every day is a fun trip to the beach, even if sometimes it's just to hunt for some fish or get into a scrap with another animal over territory. Still seems like the kind of life that might be worth trying for a day or two, right? But which one is the right one for you?
There's a lot of difference between a tiny otter, a languid seal, and a massive, lumbering bear. Why not take this quiz here and find out which one is going to fit your personality perfectly? Best to know where you stand before you head out into the wild, right?
