(CNN) - This little guy is no NBA star, but he definitely knows how to dunk.
His name's Eddie and he's a sea otter at the Oregon Zoo.
Eddie is turning the ripe old age of 16 this year and zookeepers say he suffers from arthritis in his elbows.
They taught him to dunk last year to exercise his joints.
The slam-dunking sea otter has gotten so good at it, zookeepers say nowadays he rarely misses.
