Feeling excited about the weekend? You’re in good company with this adorable otter pup.
The family are Asian small-clawed otters and are part of the JungleWorld section of the zoo. They’re the smallest otter species in the world and usually live in extended family groups with only one pair breeding at a time. They also live in monogamous couples.
Despite being a protected species, their numbers are declining due to habitat destruction, hunting and pollution. The Bronx Zoo is one of many around the world who house these adorable creatures.
The Zoo is also the biggest and oldest zoo in the USA with more than 6000 animals across its 265 acres.
