Otters Have the Best Time Ever in Ice Bucket at Portland Zoo

A trio of otters at the Oregon Zoo in Portland frolicked in a bucket of ice, as seen in adorable video posted to Twitter on June 17.

Tilly and her two adopted pups, Flora and Hobson, are featured diving and wiggling in the ice, chomping on cubes, and wrestling one another across several days in the video compilation.

The popular zoo residents came to the facility as rescues, unable to survive alone in the wild, according to the Oregon Zoo.

North American river otters typically reside in the Pacific Northwest and survive on fish and other marine life in lakes and rivers in the region. The otters’ names came from three bodies of water in Oregon: Floras Lake, Hobson Creek, and Tillamook River. Credit: Oregon Zoo via Storyful
