The Kansas City Zoo is showing off its newest otter pups. Han, Luke and Leia are Asian small-clawed otters born last October and their mother and father raised them behind the scenes until they got bigger and learned how to swim.
Otter pups are not born knowing how to swim so mom and dad must teach them. Zookeepers added pools in their behind-the-scenes bedroom, increasing the depth of the pools as the pups gradually built up their swimming skills and confidence.
Zoo patrons suggested names and zoo keepers made the final choice to name the pups after the main characters in Star Wars.
