Baby Asian Otters Welcomed to New Zealand Zoo, Baby Zoo Animals

What a Pair: Baby Otters Welcomed in New Zealand

A pair of snuggly baby Asian otters were welcomed into the world last month in New Zealand and made their public debut yesterday at the Auckland Zoo. The babies are still very wiggly and clumsy (being too young for much coordination), and are small enough to fit in your hand! I used to have a baby otter toy when I was younger but thinking back, I realize my toy was nothing compared to the cuteness of the real thing!

Asian otters are closely related to ferrets and skunks, and are the smallest of all 13 species. You can't see these little guys up close (unless you live in New Zealand, of course), but you can check out a video of Asian otters in action via the Monterey Bay Aquarium's exhibit here in California.
