Adorable Newborn Tapir Has ‘First’ Swim With Mother

https://youtu.be/TrYf05FYtNU

The summer weather has finally arrived and it is getting hot. The tapir mother is showing of its newborn baby in the water as the little one has one of its first swim in the pool. It’s hesitant at first to jump in (there are actually several easier ways to get into the water) and itโ€™s still quite shaky and unstable on its legs. As soon as the calf is in the water, the mother is there step by step or in this case swim stroke by swim stroke. The newborn seems to struggle at first, but quickly getting used to the water and having fun swimming around.
The baby is roughly 2 weeks old and is only on show to the public for a few hours a day to get it used to its surrounding. I was lucky enough to catch this cute bundle of joy.
They are born dark and covered with stripes and spots that fade within 3 month and disappear at about 5-6 month.

Definitely the face after a heavy drinking session. Eyes all over the place, slobbering and just not knowing where you are. Hopefully this chameleon from the Paignton zoo doesn’t just know how to change its colour.

Dog Thinks It Can Swim Faster Than A Duck

https://youtu.be/BcBhHi1OZIg

It was a very hot afternoon that day at the Stepping stones at Dovedale, Thorpe Cloud in England and this dog decided to have a swim in the River Dove and chase the ducks. The Labrador certainly had some stamina and kept on swimming after the ducks. Even when the duck decided to fly a few meters ahead the dog didn’t give up. Jumping the cascade up and down, weaving through the water and just kept on going.
The owners were shouting at the dog to come back, but I think it just decided it had too much fun to stop.
