Zoo Babies Figuring Things Out

Following are some utterly adorable videos from the Pittsburgh Zoo as several of their baby animals explore their worlds. Some of the most interesting are the Sea Lion and Beavers. Watching how the parents guide them around the water and help them in and out is a little hard to watch (they seem a bit rough to our sensibilities), but certainly demonstrative of their doting parent behaviors. You can almost translate exactly what that Sea Lion is saying!

The first video is some African Wild Dog pups that were raised by a surrogate domestic dog.

Second is the Sea Lions.

Now some ridiculously adorable baby beavers.

And some River Otters.
