In some exciting news from Dubai Aquarium, the centre has announced that it will give the public the opportunity to name the two newest additions to the underwater zoo.

The twin pups are Asian small-clawed otters, a threatened species and were born as part of the Dubai Aquarium’s conservation scheme.

The mother of the two (a boy and a girl) is Ginger, one of the first Asian small-clawed otters to be born at the Dubai centre in 2015, her parents are Pepper and Tiny – the first-ever otters to be housed at the Dubai Aquarium when it opened in 2008.

According to the Aquarium, the “most meaningful names” will win the competition. The lucky winner of the competition will also be given a family pass to visit the young otters along with the rest of the aquatic creatures at Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo.
