Swimming lesson
Sea otters are highly caring and nurturing animals. Their offspring are born on land but quickly move to water, where they learn to swim and hunt. Young otters are covered with dense fur, isolating them from cold water but making swimming more challenging. Therefore, otter mothers assist them in staying afloat until they learn to swim independently. This partnership strengthens family bonds and enables young otters to effectively acquire life skills in the cold waters of the Pacific Ocean.
