Four adorable Asian small clawed otter pups born at RZSS Edinburgh Zoo on November 18th 2021 have made their first public appearance.


Parents Barry and Luna welcomed the new additions to their family and until now have been caring for them in an off-display den. The experienced parents welcomed their last litter of three pups known as Garry, Eden and Clyde in January 2021.  


Recently the pups had their first health check during which vets determined they are all females. They will be named in coming weeks.

“Barry and Luna have previously proved themselves to be very attentive parents and can often be seen with their older pups Garry, Eden and Clyde playing in their stream. 


“With the addition of the four girls, we now have nine Asian small-clawed otters here at the zoo. The species live in family groups consisting of a mum and dad then their older offspring who help to raise the younger ones.”
