The pups were born on June 24th to parents, four-year-old Wade and dad Mekong, who turns two in December.


The two were among four otters that were introduced to the aquarium at Easter, having been rehomed from two zoos in the UK.


Radio Kerry’s Majella O’Sullivan spoke to head aquarist Louise Overy, who says the birth of the pups shows how well the otters are settling in.
