Meet Brooklyn’s new awwww-ters

Aww-ters! Prospect Park’s new baby otters are so cute it hurts.

Prospect Park Zoo is showing off its crop of new babies — and they’re otter-ly irresistible!

Dixie, a North American river otter, gave birth to three adorable pups in February — the first born in the city since 1956, the Wildlife Conservation Society says.

The painfully cute web-footed babies are usually found in Canada.

But you don’t need to leave the borough for a chance to peek at these little cuties.

Prospect Park Zoo [450 Flatbush Ave. between Eastern Parkway and Ocean Avenue in Prospect Park, (718) 399-7339]. $8 for adults, $5 for kids.
