Did anyone happen to catch these images on Yahoo! New? They're so cute, so we had to share them.

From Yaho! News: SeaWorld animal trainers in Orlando have had their hands full with four baby Asian small-clawed otters, seen March 30, 2009.

From Yahoo! News: One of four baby Asian small-clawed otters is seen at SeaWorld in Orlando, Fla. Born just three weeks ago to parents Simon and Sophie, the pups are nursing and will open their eyes in about a week. Asian small-clawed otters live in the rivers, creeks, estuaries and coastal waters of Southeast Asia, from northern India to southeastern China, the Malay Peninsula and parts of Indonesia. SeaWorld breeds the otters as part of the Association of Zoos and Aquarium’s Species Survival Plan, which aims to preserve, in zoos and aquariums, animals that are threatened or endangered in the wild.
