(PIX11) – This performance could be called “otter-ly” wonderful.

The National Zoo on Tuesday uploaded 32 adorable seconds of Asian small-clawed otters tickling the ivory – or rather, plastic – on an electronic keyboard as part of their “zoo enrichment.”

“The otters are given the choice to play the keyboard or just sit back and enjoy the show—engaging their sight, touch, and hearing senses,” the Zoo wrote in its caption.

At least five of the creatures reached their tiny paws through a screen door to create their own song.

And it doesn’t sound half bad. Listen for yourself, below.
