I came to this article to find out more about the sea otters that live near my apartment in Lumut, Malaysia. This article concentrates mostly on US and Canadian sea otters, with very little mention of Asian otters. In fact, the article implies that otters' southernmost range in Asia is Japan. This is clearly wrong, as I live near the equator.
I'd appreciate someone with more knowledge of sea otters adding balance to this article with some more information on Asian sea otters. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Newzild (talk • contribs) 04:50, 24 February 2013 (UTC)
Who is this 'Silverstein' cited so often in the references, and what reference did he write? It is not very helpful to give just the name of an auther and never the name of the work. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 18:22, 9 August 2013 (UTC)
Look at the reference list below the numbered notes. Silverstein, Alvin; Silverstein, Virginia and Robert (1995). The Sea Otter. Brookfield, Connecticut: The Millbrook Press, Inc. ISBN 1-56294-418-5. OCLC 30436543 Civiello m (talk) 12:21, 13 August 2013 (UTC)
The wiki linked "otter" in the first sentence of this article should be removed. It conflicts with MOS, specifically WP:LINKSTYLE (quote: "Links should not be placed in the boldface reiteration of the title in the opening sentence of a lead") and WP:BOLDTITLE (last entry). Normally I would let this slip, but a featured article should follow MOS.188.8.131.52 (talk) 13:50, 21 November 2013 (UTC)
