Cute animal alert!!

Basketball trained sea otter 'shoots hoops' for exercise - video

An elderly sea otter is winning hearts and scoring points as it dunks basketballs at a zoo in Portland, Oregon. The 15-year-old otter, named Eddie, suffers from arthritis in his elbows. Eddie has been trained to shoot a small ball through a plastic basketball hoop in an attempt to improve his arthritic joints

If he misses, he keeps going until he makes it.

I had assumed that he "shot hoops" with his nose like a seal, but he dunks with his hands! Adorable.

He not only dunks, he double pumps, drives the lane, and rebounds twice!

I'd love to know more about these two. They're so cooperative, patient, and gentle with each other. I wonder if they're good pals who keep each other company during the day when everyone is gone.

It got knocked off mine, too, in addition to a couple of others.

I found myself smiling while watching the video, something I rarely do when people on Facebook post "cute animal" videos.

Cutest animal on YouTube, especially if you like pugs.

by Anonymousreply 1902/21/2013

It would probably make a good pool question but aren't otters one of those animals which are just inherently cute?
