Step aside, Keyboard Cat. These otters prove that cats aren't the only opposable-thumbless animal that can play a mean tune on the trusty keyboard.

As part of a zoo enrichment program at the Smithsonian's National Zoo in Washington D.C., otters are given a choice to either play music on a keyboard or sit back and enjoy the show. The program aims to engage the sight, hearing, and touch of the otters while giving attendees a pretty neat show.

From the looks of it, the otters are indeed enjoying themselves and rocking along with the music.
