MUST-SEE: Sea otter plays basketball to exercise elbows

PORTLAND, OR -- Just give him the ball and let him score -- that's the hoop dreams for one sea otter.

Eddie, who is turning 16-years-old, plays basketball at the Oregon Zoo to exercise his arthritic elbows.

Workers at the zoo trained Eddie to play basketball and improve his health.

"Eddie almost never misses and if he does miss he keeps going until he makes it," keeper Jenny DeGroot said.

From the footage captured on video, the sea otter turns out to be pretty good.
