Otter swimming lessons

I always figured otters were born knowing how to swim, inheriting genetic memory that made them immediately safe in water.

Turns out they have to learn. The otter mom at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium is teaching her new baby to be at ease in the water, to float, to swim, to dive, and, finally, to dry off afterward.
