Well here is something that will definitely get you through the rest of the week; tiny, cute English Bulldog puppies learning to walk for the very first time. The squeaking and baby fat rolls are also an added adorable bonus.
That is quite possibly the cutest thing I have ever seen in my entire life. Those little birds chirping sounds they make are way cutetastic!
Two baby otters at Longleat are being taught to swim in a paddling pool – by the keeper they think is their mum.
Deputy Head of Section at Animal Adventure, Beverley Allen, is rearing the infants and has bottle-fed the cute pair since they were born.
The pair, named Sumalee and Kasem, are now being taught to swim ready to return to their birth parents. As Beverley explained “I started off putting them in the sink with a little bit of water when they were about nine weeks old. Then they progressed to my bath, where I could make the water a bit deeper to let them practice their breathing. Now they’re splashing around quite happily in a paddling pool, with a few toys to encourage them to play.”
See animals are just like us. Their mothers also pressure them to do things they don’t want to do.
If youve spent any time watching the Zoos North American river otters or our Asian small-clawed otters, youve probably noticed that otters seem almost as home in the water as most fish. But, did you know that otters have to be taught how to swim? Otter pups arent born with any innate knowledge of how to swim or handle themselves in the water. And since otters depend on water to survive, mom has to teach her babies how to be as home in the water as they are on land.
