CLEVELAND, Ohio -- You otter get to the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo ASAP.
On Friday, the zoo officially announced the birth of three male otter pups who 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.
