otter_1634120cA pair of white otters have been born at the Blue Planet Aquarium. They are thought to be the first to be born in captivity in Britain. They are part of a litter of three baby Asian short clawed otters which were born in March. It is thought that the white otters have leucism, a condition where the animals fur develops without its natural pigment.
