For all of you animal lovers out there, tomorrow is the year’s grand opening of the Ross Park Zoo in Binghamton. New to the zoo this year are three little otter pups.
“Their names are Ottawa, Aria and Edgar," says Maria Desisto, zookeper. "Their eyes are open. They’re starting to todder around like little toddlers do, getting their balance and their footing just right.”
The 7-week-old pups make high-pitched squeaks to which the mother replies with a reassuring grunt.
The zoo is announcing two new species next week.
