Most people are surprised to learn that baby otters don’t instinctually know how to swim when they are born. Ironically, the water animals have to teach their young how to swim, much like humans.
And similarly to people, the mother otter will seemingly drag their young to the water’s edge, and throw them in with a splash. It may look a little rough at first, but it’s really no different than signing your kid up for swimming lessons at the local pool or YMCA in the summer.
The Oregon Zoo has gone viral with this adorable video featuring their baby river otter Molalla. In less than a week, the video highlighting Molalla’s first ‘swimming lesson’ has accumulated over 300,000 views.
This emotional video was first published by Michael Krauter almost a month ago, but it has only gone viral over the weekend, amassing over 150,000 views just over the past few days.
The Internet simply can’t get enough of grandparents-to-be reacting to the news that a grand-kid is on the way. Here, Michael and his wife surprise his in-laws at his father-in-laws 60th birthday party with the exciting news that a grand-baby is expected in September. Naturally, dad just smiles while mom has a full (very happy) nervous breakdown.
Joann Moser ‘claims’ her adorable two year old toddler woke in the middle of the night, not with the desire for a drink of water, but rather thirsting for his sister’s pillow pet.
Apparently, the little guy is dexterous enough to pick a lock with a nail clippers. Of course, the video is fake, but that hasn’t stopped it from going viral, amassing over 70,000 hits, and appearing on DailyPicks, HuffPost, and DenverPost.
