Mother otter "teaching" her pup how to swim. Pretty interesting video from a zoo, and though a few of you guys might enjoy it.


Not sure how to embed it from YouTube, here here is the shortened link.

That was really neat. I had no idea. They are pretty cute, but I still want to trap one.

Looked more like a little bit of otter torture if you ask me. Now come on son/daughter you are learning to swim if you like it or not!

Looks like the "wildlife" equivalent of water-boarding.

Ahh just liek my dad taught me. Last summer I saw a mother mink throwing her pups into the water to get them to swim, went on for long time.
