The Oregon Zoo has gone viral with this adorable video of Eddie the Sea Otter. Eddie was rescued off the southern coast, and is now about 16 years old–nearly retirement age for an otter.

The veterinarian doctors noticed a little arthritis in his elbows after an x-ray, so to help relieve the tension and pain, the staff is training Eddie to play basketball in the pool

The precious sea animal video is two weeks old, and already it has accumulated over 875,000 hits
