I've mentioned many times that my favorite animals at the Buffalo Zoo are the otters (although George the Rhino is certainly giving them a run for their money).  I could seriously watch them for hours. They're fun, they're playful, they're just awesome.  And now there are even more otters to love!

They were born on February 28th but the big announcement came today on Star Wars Day – May The 4th...get it?

It's one male and one female so in honor of the big day, the new North American Otter pups have been named Luke and Leia.

"Making this announcement on Wednesday, May 4, and on behalf of the otter pups, the Zoo would like to say, 'May the 4th be with you.'”

The zoo is now full of young animals.  With the announcement of the birth of a new lion cub in April, a new gorilla in January and the otters, you are going to need to make sure the zoo is on your list of places to go this summer.
