CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The Texas State Aquarium has announced the new name of their newest and possibly cutest member of their family.

The name of their most recent addition, an orphaned baby otter, is now named "Arthur."

Arthur is estimated between eight or nine weeks old.

In late April, the 2-pound North American River Otter was found on the side of a road in Austin and was taken to the Central Veterinary Specialty & Emergency Hospital where he was immediately triaged.

The pup was transferred to the Texas State Aquarium after stabilization.
