HANNA CITY, Ill. (WEEK) -- -

Wildlife Prairie Park is welcoming a new baby otter pup.

Mother Annie delivered her pup on March 18. The park said both mother and baby are healthy and staying in their den. The den is a safe place for the pup to nurse and cuddle until it is old enough to open its eyes. 

Wildlife Prairie Park expects the pup to make its first public appearance in the summer. 

The parents Annie and Oakley have lived in the park their whole lives. Updates will be posted on the Wildlife Prairie Park Facebook and website. 

Here is a video of the mother and pup from the park:
