Last week, Chicago's Shedd Aquarium - with the help of Good Morning America and over 10,000 voters - announced the new name for Otter 681, who was taken in by the aquarium through a partnership with the Monterey Bay Aquarium last month.
Voters had the opportunity to choose from five names (Cali, Ellie, Poppy, Ana and Luna). Which was the winning name? Luna! We think it's a perfect fit.
During the special event held at the aquarium last Thursday, Luna was introduced to the otter exhibit at the Regenstein Sea Otter habitat in the Abbott Oceanarium at Shedd - where she'll become a fixture in the spring of 2015.
When she was first brought in, she weighed in at just six pounds. She's 11 pounds now and learning new things every day - from diving, to foraging for food, to grooming on her own.
