PORTLAND, Oregon - Eddie the Otter is showing off some hoop moves at the Oregon Zoo that could rival some NBA stars.

Eddie's keeper began training the 15-year-old otter to put a ball through a plastic basketball hoop last year to exercise the aging otter's arthritic elbows.

Eddie is now so good at shooting hoops he rarely misses a shot.

Watch more of Eddie's moves in this YouTube from the Oregon Zoo.
