PORTLAND, Ore. (CNN) - This little guy is no NBA star, but he definitely knows how to dunk.

Eddie the sea otter lives at the Oregon Zoo. He's turning the ripe old age of 16 this year and zookeepers say he suffers from arthritis in his elbows.

Sea otters typically live between 15 and 20 years, so zookeepers had to devise a way for Eddie to exercise his joints.

The slam dunking sea otter has gotten so good at it that zookeepers say nowadays Eddie rarely misses. And even when he does miss, Eddie's quick with the put back.
