Saturday Smiley: Baby Otter Swim Lessons

Whew! I’m sure glad I wasn’t born an otter. I do not think I would like swimming lessons. But I do have to say…they might prolly be some of the cutest animals in the whole wide world.

If you can’t see the movie, click here.

PeeS. I’m off to the Big Banquet for the Race of the Century! It’s gonna be lots of fun. I hope to see you there!!

  1. Oo, that’s really cute! I didn’t know the babies had to be taught how to swim, hehe. My hoomans saw a whole furmaily of wild otters while they were at this natural conversation forest. They said they were the darnest cutest critters hehehe.


  2. Oh Mayzie dat was sooo cute butts I kinda felt sorry fer him when his mom was pullin him by da foot, what a great teecher her is tho

    I LOVE otters. They are so cute!

    See you at the banquet!

    Your pal, Pip

  4. So cute! I love swimming too but I can’t remember having any lessons. Mom-otter is a real taskmaster there!

  5. That Muzzer Otter reminds me of someone I know! When it is bath time, she grabs any available appendage to keep me in the shower with her!


  6. Yikes – that momma otter wasn’t messing around! Had to laugh at how she sort of throws the baby in, then has to pull him back into the pool by his little leggie when he tries to get out! Good thing they are buoyant… As you might remember, I need to wear a life vest to have ANY chance of staying afloat, so this is very impressive indeed!

  7. Nows they is totaly adorables! I’d likes to haves one as a pet but I DON”T do water so I can’t teach ’em. But, I had no idea dat they had to be taught dat stuffs…I thoughts they came out knowing hows to swim.

    Okays nows, lets get us a drinky and dance.

    Otters make great moms, don’t they? The Momster doesn’t know how to swim and wishes she had an otter mom to have helped her when she was young. Great video.

  13. Mayzie, that is one great video. We loved watching the baby learning how to swim. Poor thing got pushed under a bunch of times but guess that is how they learn. Hope you have a terrific Saturday.

  14. MOL! That was too cute! Their mom is a persistent teacher.

    Nubbin wiggles,

  22. That was awfully cute! I didn’t know they had to be taught to swim.

    I hope you made it to the banquet in one piece after riding in that red Pinto of Puddles’!


  23. miss mayzie,

    that was a grrreat informational…i didn’t know that the little baby otters had to be taught swimmies either! boy howdy, that looked like hard work, too! i bet that baby otter was super pooped after his lesson! i kept gettin’ the giggles over how the baby was tryin’ to get outta the waters at the beginning. it reminded me of asa. BOL!!

    the booker man

    We didn’t know they had to learn to swim! We loved the bit where the mother had to pull the baby back into the water.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  25. Mayzie, the otters are very adorable! We love the video! Maybe they could teach Holly to swim….she is so afraid of the water! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

  26. Lorenza

    That sure is a determined mom!
    I loved the video!
    Happy Saturday!

    I had to wait and wait for my internet to be fast enough to watch the video, and it was worth it. That is too adorable for words. The pups really don’t seem too enthused about going in the water at first but mom just drags them!

    Funny, when I had my first lab puppy, I thought that I have to teach her to swim. No way! She was off and paddling in the blink of an eye! That’s why I’m so surprised that otter pups have to learn.

  28. Awwww, they are a-dorable!!! But – we’re glad we weren’t taught to swim like that 🙂

  29. Hi Mayzie! What a video! Otters are such cuties – but boy that baby otter did NOT want to be in there at first! But oh it is so cute and funny to watch them in their swimming lesson!
