A friend sent us this video of a mother otter teaching her pup to swim.
 
Surprisingly, otter pups have no innate knowledge of how to swim or handle themselves in the water.
 
And since otters depend on fish to survive, mom has to teach her babies how to be as home in the water as they are on land.
 
In March of 2010, Audrey, the Columbus Zoo’s North American river otter female, gave birth to three healthy male pups.
 
At around 30 days old, the pups are strong enough to begin their swimming lessons although sometimes, much like kids everywhere, they’re not the most enthusiastic students ... enjoy!
