The Woodland Park Zoo’s four Asian small-clawed otter pups are nearing two months old. They are learning to walk, jump, run and squeal.
Later in the summer they will go on view to the public, but for now they are learning and bonding with their family out of sight. One of the things they must prove they can do before they go on exhibit is swim, an essential task for any otter.

Nayembi, a female western lowland gorilla, was recently reunited with her mother after she was separated to recover from an injury. They live together at the
Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago, IL.
Before the full reunion, the two were able to see and smell each other under the watchful eye of caregivers.
The pair will be given some privacy to bond before the public will be able to visit with them again.
