Slam Dunk for Sea Otter [VIDEO]
I was just thinking, if we team up Sioux Falls Skyforce phenom Demetris Nichols with Eddie the Sea Otter, you could just hand over the championship trophy right now.
An adorably arthritic sea otter has become something of a viral sensation this week.
Eddie the southern sea otter, a resident of the Oregon Zoo, has reportedly been trained to play basketball so that he can exercise his arthritic elbows.
“He’s definitely got game,” Jenny DeGroot, the zoo’s lead sea otter keeper, said in a press release. “Sea otters have incredible dexterity, so it makes sense Eddie would have this hidden talent."
The Oregon Zoo says that Eddie, who was abandoned as a pup, is 15 years old.
