Eddie the geriatric slam-dunking sea otter (video)

Eddie is a senior citizen sea otter who was rescued from southern California — he was unable to survive on his own — and now lives in the Portland Zoo.

Doctors recently noticed that Eddie, who is already a senior at age 15, had arthritis.  So they needed to come up with an exercise program to help keep his elbows nimble.  They figured shooting hoops would be a great way to exercise his entire elbows.

Check out Eddie’s moves!

Here are a few screen shots, followed by the video.
