She Who Chirps the Loudest

Otter Pups Chirping

When it comes to conservation of a vulnerable species, hearing the chirping sounds of a new crop of Asian small-clawed otters is music to our ears. The otter team weighed and measured the three female otter pups at 38 days old. This followed an exam by the Aquarium veterinary team. They are growing and developing — at this stage of their development, that means teeth are coming in and eyes are opening. New parents Leia and Quincy continue to be attentive to their new pups. Follow their journey on Facebook and Instagram. Find out more about the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) Species Survival Plan® (SSP) Program and why the birth of these three otter pups is critical to the conservation of Asian small-clawed otters.
