River otter pups now at Detroit Zoo

DETROIT (AP) -

The Detroit Zoo is showing off its new North American river otters. The three pups made their public debut last month.

At around 2 months old, otter pups receive their first swimming lesson when their mother pushes them into the water. Otters are natural swimmers and, with maternal supervision, pups quickly catch on.

The Detroit Zoo's otter pups are to the point that they're ready to show off their newfound aquatic skills.
