Watch A Baby Otter Learn to Swim

River otters are excellent swimmers, using their powerful tails, long bodies and webbed feet to glide through the water. But otters aren’t born knowing how to swim! Mom’s teach their pups when they are around 10 to 12 weeks old.

Check out this video to see river otter mother Tilly teach her second pup Ziggy to swim at the Oregon Zoo’s Cascade Stream and Pond habitat.
