Here Are Some Otters Tickling the Ivories

They're actually pretty good if you cut them a bit of slack. Since, you know, they're otters

A group of Asian small-clawed otters got a chance to show off their musical talents by playing a keyboard at the National Zoo. (It’s part of their “enrichment” program.)

Some are total slackers and just hang back, riding on the coattails of the other otters. But those who go for it, well, they really go for it. Bravo.
