Asian Small-Clawed Otter

About

Cuddle puddle! Our Asian small-clawed otter family can now be seen on #OtterCam ! We've installed a night vision camera in the otter's nestbox so that we can observe all of the family activity.

Cai (Mom) and Ian (Dad) have added to their family again with two boys and one girl! We wanted to name this trio after another famous trio with two boys and a girl. Facebook fans suggested names and our Zookeepers made the final decision to name the baby otters after three main characters from the Star Wars franchise, Han, Luke, and Leia. They join older brother Otis, born last year, and twins Conner and Clover, born this past March 18. They are currently behind-the-scenes in their cozy den and won’t be visible for several months. The whole family is taking part in the care and raising of the pups and this means that at times, only Otis will be visible to guests on exhibit.
