Molalla, a 9-week old Baby River Otter, learns how to swim at the Oregon Zoo.  OK. I’ll never complain about my swimming lessons in my youth…

  1. So no one grabbed you by the scruff of your neck and kept dunking you until you got it? You’re right, nothing to complain about. Though I still can’t dive – can’t figure out why I should put my head where the rest of me hasn’t been yet.

  2. Awww, he’s a cute little guy, and I have to agree with the commentator, mom’s approach *is* a bit {ahem} brusque. Guess she believes in “complete immersion” as the quickest method of learning…..ba dum bum…. 😉

  6. Hahaha! Can you imagine if one of our parents did that to us??? Poor little guy…yeah, he’ll learn to swim if he even lives! I saw the part where the mom was kind of stroking the baby with her paw…and figure she was either trying to comfort the little guy…or see if he was even alive.

  7. I have actually watched documentaries where patents of children do something similar…and it works.

  11. Absolutely adorable 🙂 There’s an organisation called the Otter Trust in the UK, with three centres, one of which I used to visit every time I went on holiday to Suffolk. There’s also the Suffolk Wildlife Trust that’s been doing some great work with these wonderful creatures. http://www.suffolkwildlifetrust.org/about-us/news/good-news-for-otters/
