Eddie the otter is almost 16 years old! That makes him quite ancient. Like anyone who’s getting up there in age, this little guy needs to keep in shape. Eddie has been trained to dunk a basketball to alleviate his arthritis. However, you won’t see him doing this nifty little trick at the zoo. It is purely a behind-the-scenes exercise.
