Baby Otters Born At Newquay Zoo
8:05am 26th October 2014
Three tiny otter cubs have been born at Newquay Zoo.
They have made their first appearance since being born six weeks ago.
They are still in their nesting box after but can be seen through the glass panel.
The babies will soon be out and about and learning to swim
The Asian short-claws are the smallest of the otter species in the world and are classed as vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
Newquay Zoo Director Stewart Muir said: "The cubs are impossibly cute so we do hope people will come along and watch their progress over the next few weeks.
"Asian short-clawed otters are incredibly social animals, compared with other otter species, so visitors will be able to watch how the cubs' siblings play an active role in teaching them how to cope in the strange new world outside the nest."8:05am 26th October 2014
