KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -- The Kansas City Zoo's triplet otter pups are venturing out on exhibit for the first time.

The triplets, Han, Luke and Leia, were born on Oct. 20 and are getting to know their new home under the watchful eye of their parents and big brothers, Otis and Conner, and big sister, Clover.

The otter babies were born to mom Cai and dad Ian. They are the third, fourth and fifth babies for this duo.

The zoo's Facebook fans suggested names and zookeepers made the final decision to name the baby otters after three main characters from the Star Wars franchise.
