Otter-ly Adorable! Pups Birthed At Aquatarium

Two happy otter pups have been born to their female river Otter Ivy at the Aquatarium.

Ivy is a rescue river otter which joined the staff two years ago.

Executive Director Bill Rogerson says that the pups are doing well, but will stay close to their mother for the next few months. 

"Their eyes remain closed for the first 30 days and they are completely dependent on their mother. The pups will be about two months old before they will be able to leave the nest, and then mom can teach them to swim," aquatarium officials say in a release.

Rogerson says there's no official date for the public to start to visit - but are hoping for a reveal closer to the summer.
