If baby animals are said to produce squeals and sighs, prepare to emit plenty of both at the newest heart-tuggable photographs shared by the Santa Barbara Zoo on Monday, Oct. 16. The critters in the pictures, three Asian small-clawed otters, were born at the animal park on Saturday, Oct. 7 to Gail and Peeta, both first-time parents.
The tiny babies are still with their parents in a den that's off-view, but otter fans can get a first look at the trio thanks to a few squeal-inducing, sigh-summoning snapshots. Of interesting note: This is the first time in six years that Asian small-clawed otter pups have been born at the animal park.
