Otterly Amazing: Tilly’s Aquatic Lessons for Her Pup

BY LINNEA  26 MAY 2023

Welcome to an Otterly Amazing world of aquatic learning at the Oregon Zoo.

The video presents Tilly, a 13-year-old North American river otter....

...imparting essential swimming lessons to her four-month-old pup, Mo.

This might surprise many....

But swimming is something other than an innate skill for river otters.

These cute creatures learn from their mothers like humans...

Witness Mo’s first dip, buoyed by his built-in water wings, under Tilly’s watchful eye.

The video perfectly demonstrates mother otters’ commitment to nurturing their offspring
