The Great Lakes Aquarium is asking for help naming its new pair of river otters.

The otters were rescued from live traps in Louisiana. They can't be released back into the wild, so they've found a home at the aquarium.

The aquarium is conducting an online poll to name the otters. The options are Cajun and Creole, Chinook and Nodin (the words mean "wind"), Cascade and Tette (short for Tettegouche), Seiche and Riffle or Agate and Ore.

The otters first went on exhibit at the aquarium on April 17. They're taking over for the 17-year-old resident otter, which went into retirement at the beginning of the year.

To vote, visit the Great Lakes Aquarium website.
