Pueblo Zoo Birth Announcement:  We have otter pups!

 

PUEBLO, Colo. –  After much anticipation, the Pueblo Zoo is pleased to announce the birth of three baby otters.  The pups were born to mom, Freyja, on March 3, 2014. Zookeepers were able to get their first close-up contact on March 6 and determined we have 2 females and 1 male.  Freyja is adapting to motherhood quite well. Nursing and bonding seems to be going well as is evidenced by the robust health of the babies as they weigh in at 145g (boy), 135g(girl), and 155g (big girl!).
