Sea Otter at Oregon Zoo Demonstrates Correct Way to Open Oysters

Video shared by the Oregon Zoo on May 19 captures adorable resident sea otter Sushi demonstrating her surprisingly brutal technique for shucking oysters.

The female sea otter, who was found as a pup in 2018 stranded on a beach near Santa Cruz, California, was named Uni Sushi (uni is the Japanese word for sea urchin) by the zoo’s marine mammal team “in honor of the diet of sustainable seafood she and the rest of the sea otter family enjoy,” according to the zoo’s website.
