Chester Zoo in the UK became the proud new owners of two adorbz Asian Small-Clawed Otter pups back in the end of January!
The two little pups, Wallace, a boy, and Dill, a girl, have been spending time exploring their enclosure with their mama Daisy and their papa Robbie.
Just recently, it was time for their first check up!
The little otters were weighed and checked all over for general good health.
A zoo vet said:
"Little otter Wallace weighed in at 730 grams and Dili was a little lighter than 680 grams. Both proved to be fairly feisty characters but they are extremely healthy indeed so we are very happy with them. As they continue to grow and become even more confident, we're looking forward to seeing them take to the water. Zoos provide the last insurance policy against extinction and these new arrivals will hopefully now continue to develop and become a vital part of the international breeding program to safeguard the species."
Woo! So they're healthy and they're helping to revive an endangered species!
Way to go Chester Zoo! Let's keep those cuties healthy and breeding! (Not with each other of course! LOLz!)
