Otterly Adorable! New otter pups arrive in Foot Safari
Asian short clawed otters, Kelani and Kovo, have welcomed another successful litter of ‘otterly’ adorable pups to the Animal Encounters section of the park.
Currently tucked away in their nest box with mum, Kelani, the pups are solely reliant on her for warmth and milk so it is up to Kovo and the older pups to gather food for them.
Although the adults are expert swimmers, Asian short clawed otters aren’t big or strong enough to be able to swim from birth so the pool will be drained until the pups are around 12 weeks old, when a small amount of water will be added again as they begin their swimming lessons.
