As part of the Vancouver Aquarium’s animal enrichment program, food is frozen inside a block of ice for the otter to break free.  In nature, a sea otter would use a rock to break open his food, typically a shellfish of some sort.  The Vancouver Aquarium found that giving the otters rock resulted in a lot of scratched-up glass.
