Otter-ly adorable! Cleveland zoo welcomes 3 otter pups

Posted: Updated:

The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo showed off three male otter pups born at the zoo in September.

The Asian small-clawed otter pups were born to mom Bitzy and dad Kibble. They are indigenous to Asia and are one of the smallest species of otters.

Otter pups are born with their eyes still closed, and it takes several weeks before they're able to develop mobility and eventually swim, the zoo said.

The three are expected to join their parents in The RainForest exhibit in the coming weeks.

Asian small-clawed otters are listed as a vulnerable species by the International Union for Conversation of Nature.
