Oriental Small-clawed Otters / Edinburgh Zoo

Edinburgh Zoo‘s Oriental Small-clawed Otters welcomed five newborns to the raft in July this year — and now the 10 week old pups have started venturing out and about in their enclosure. The quintuplets were born to mum Elena and dad Ray — their third litter since arriving at the Zoo, making them experts when it comes to rearing pups. The youngsters have only recently started to explore their new surroundings under the watchful eyes of their older sisters, Eliza and Aisha, and of course their protective parents. Keepers have sexed the 10 week olds as three females and two males, who have yet to be named — via ZooBorns
