Four Oriental small-clawed otter pups have been welcomed into Taronga Western Plains Zoo and recently given a clean bill of health by vets.
The fabulous four, which includes three females and a male, were born on May, 1, 2019, to first time mother Jafar and father Harry.
Keepers have named the three females named Akira, Luna and Rani, whilst the male has been named Anng.
The Zoo's keepers and vets have been physically monitoring the pups from four weeks of age, which involves weighing and measuring the pups weekly.
"The Otter pups' growth and development has progressed at a good, consistent rate. They are meeting all their expected milestones," Dubbo Zoo senior keeper Ian Anderson said.
Jafar and Harry have been keeping a watchful eye over their pups and will help them learn new foods and teach them how to swim.

Mr Anderson said Jafar and Harry are proving to be great parents and that it was normal for Otter parents to both help raise the young pups.
"We monitored the Otter dens closely via CCTV cameras in the lead up to the birth as well as for the first four weeks after they were born," he added.
The Otter pups only opened their eyes at seven weeks of age.
They've just started to emerge from the den with their parents, much to the delight of school holiday visitors who have caught a sneak peak of them.
"In the last week they have started to venture out of their den for the first time, exploring their exhibit with their parents," Mr Anderson said.
If you want to catch a glimpse of the pups for yourself during the school holidays, a great time to view the otters would be at the 12:50pm scheduled feeding time.
"As they start to become more confident in their surrounds they will be easier to see," Mr Anderson said.
