Abstract

Scoliosis and uterine torsion are described in a pregnant adult sea otter (Enhydra lutris) tagged 3 yr prior to death. Apparently, severe scoliosis in sea otters can be compatible with good nutritional status and a life-span measured in years. No causal correlation of this condition with the animal's death was established.
