Last week we brought you news of a just-born otter pup at the Seattle Aquarium—and now we can tell you it’s a girl! Above is footage of mother Aniak’s handing off the pup for her first veterinary exam. Seattle Aquarium’s spokesman Tim Kuniholm writes:
Through positive reinforcement Aniak has been allowing us to weigh the pup and do some minimal handling the last few days. So this morning, our veterinarian, Lesanna, was able to do a physical examination on the pup poolside and confirmed it is indeed a girl. Her current weight as of (Tuesday) is 4.78 lbs (right on target!)
