The Chicago Zoological Society is seeking the public’s help to name a month-old North American river otter being hand-reared by caretakers in Brookfield, Illinois.

Video filmed on March 1 by the Chicago Zoological Society shows the baby otter feeding and playing with zookeepers.

The society determined that his mother, Charlotte, was not able to provide him with the necessary nourishment and will introduce him back to his family after he is weaned, near the end of March.

Meanwhile, the society is inviting the public to vote for the otter pup’s name on the Brookfield Zoo’s website starting on March 3. Credit: Lynette Kleisner/Chicago Zoological Society via Storyful
