River Otter Pups Born at the Buffalo Zoo

The Buffalo Zoo welcomes two litters of North American river otter pups.

The two separate litters were born in early March at the Buffalo Zoo to nine-year-old sisters Daisy and Ellie. The father of both litters is a seven-year-old North American river otter named Rascal, who arrived at the Buffalo Zoo in 2012 from the Trevor Zoo in Millbrook, NY. These are the first North American river otter births at the Buffalo Zoo, and all three of the otters are first-time parents.

Both Daisy and Ellie are proving to be attentive mothers and have kept their litters in their dens. The pups are still too small to be on exhibit for the public, but Zoo officials expect them to be out in a few weeks. In the mean time, the Zoo will share updated photos and video footage of the pups on their Facebook page and displayed near the Otter Creek exhibit.

The Otter Creek exhibit is sponsored by Buffalo Exterminating.
