    Little otters – both the river and the sea ones – have to be taught by their parents to swim, I believe. I once watched an otter couple making their den cozy at the Nat’l Zoo in DC, I suppose in preparation for kits on the way. The way the environmental designers had set it up, the den was reachable from the main pool habitat by swimming along a short subterranean stream, which was had a long, skinny window of one-way glass so that we fascinated apes could watch their gliding busy dance of home-making, carrying bunches of soft grass and leaves from the woodsy part of their enclosure into the cavelet, patting it into place, and diving back in the stream and ashore again to get more.
    Feel kind of sorry for the little one in this clip. Obviously to teach an otter child you need an otter parent!

    ADDENDUM: According to knowledgeable sounding comments on that otter clip, it’s not a baby, and it’s performing a trick it’s been taught by hoomins. Well, I’m on team otter, regardless.
