    Rockhampton will receive two Asia short-clawed otters from Taronga Zoo in December: Otters to call Rockhampton Zoo home - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)
    AFAIK, Taronga has 2.1 (all siblings) so it might be the two brothers going to Rockhampton ('Houdini' and 'Soa'). The otters will share an exhibit with lion tailed macaque.
