CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Zoo has a trio of new stars taking social media by storm.

The zoo posted live video Monday morning as their new baby otters enjoyed some morning treats and had their first experience with live fish.

“The trio are continuing to get bigger and stronger and are expected to be on exhibit very soon,” the zoo posted.

The otters, all male, were born Sept. 24.


Baby otters are born with their eyes closed and need a few weeks to learn how to swim, meaning they'll be ready to join their parents, Blitzy and Kibble, on exhibit in The RainForest in the coming weeks. The zoo now has seven otters.

The pups are Asian small-clawed otters, which are indigenous to Asia. They're one of the smaller species of otters and have hand-like paws. They're listed as a vulnerable species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
