Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - It's an otter's paradise and it just opened today.

The Red River Zoo held a ribbon cutting today to celebrate the opening of the Otter Rapids.

The zoo's newest exhibit allows people to watch otters on land and swimming underwater, but the otters almost didn't have any water to swim in this morning.

Lisa Tate- Executive Director: “We had a plumbing issue last night that drained the pool, so thanks to the Fargo Fire Department; they were able to come and quickly fill the pool with their fire hoses.”

Last year, the zoo had almost 90,000 visitors. They hope this new exhibit will draw even bigger crowds.
