Otter Pup and Gibbon Hang Out at Brookfield Zoo

An otter pup in Brookfield Zoo, Illinois, seemed very keen to cross the species divide in its habitat shared with white-cheeked gibbons, video from the zoo shows.

One 10-month-old Asian small-clawed otter pup in particular, the zoo said, was very keen to hang out with its new primate pals.

Video from the zoo shows Neubo, an eight-year-old gibbon, who “didn’t seem to mind the curious otter,” according to the zoo.

The zoo told Storyful it remained to be seen if such interactions would continue between the pair. Credit: Lynette Kleisner/CZS-Brookfield Zoo via Storyful
