Five Asian short clawed otter pups were born in December, ready for their Christmas health checks!

The three girls and two boys were all given a clean bill of health and keepers expect them to start venturing out of their holts for the very first time early in the new year.

In the wild Asian short-clawed otters face increasing threats to their survival, so the news of these five fluffy arrivals is another successful milestone for the zoo.

Keep your eyes peeled for more news about our beautiful new otter pups!
