Three otterly adorable baby otters are now on show.

The pups were born last month at the Ross Park Zoo. Since then, they've been kept with their mother, Elaine, in an inside enclosure away from public viewing.

But now, Sentry Alarms has installed a direct feed from the otter enclosure to the viewing deck above so visitors can watch them play and track their growth.

Zoo Director Steve Contento says Sentry first installed a viewing camera last year following the birth of a baby red panda.

"In the past with a lot of newborns there was a sign that said sorry not on display yet. Thanks to Sentry we are able to circumvent that and in a lot of cases provide a wonderful perspective of these infants being raised," said Contento.

Meanwhile, father otter Leroy is being kept from his offspring so he has the entire outdoor exhibit to himself for now.

By the way, tonight is Zoo Night at the Binghamton Senators game.

The Zoo officially opens on April 19th but this weekend will hold its second sneak peak event.
