Just When Everyone Was About To Give Up On Him, A 16-Year Old Otter Shows His Stuff!


At the Oregon Zoo, there are lots of amazing animals, but none excite me more than the ever talented Otters! This video is about Eddie, and he’s almost 16 years old. He was rescued from the California coast as he could no longer survive on his own in the wild. With arthritis in his elbows, the zoo keepers had to devise a way to keep him healthy, so they taught him to play basketball! And he’s quite good at it, especially since at 16 years old, he’s already considered to be a geriatric.
