Otter Pups Start Swimming Lessons!

Baby Otter Pups at Perth Zoo

At Australia's Perth Zoo, four Asian Small-clawed Otter pups were born at the end of March.

Now the little pupsters are finally grown enough to begin their swim lessons!!

What's so cool is it's not the zoo keepers that are giving them lessons or anything…

It's their older brothers!!

Four male older siblings are giving the young'uns swimming lessons in the afternoons.

The little babes recently got a checkup and vaccinations, so their swim lessons were put on hold.

The vet said:

"They are looking very healthy and progressing well, weighing between 550 and 780 grams each. These pups are quite active for their age, possibly due to the fact that they have older siblings."

Their older siblings also mature and learn valuable skills by helping to rear the pups!

It's just so friggin' cute we can't stand it!!

We have half a mind to fly to Australia just to watch these pups swim around! LOLz!

Check out a video of the little ones getting their recent checkup AFTER THE JUMP!!
