Are Lions Good Swimmers?

Lil Lion Cubs Seem to Sink Before They Swim

To prevent a sink-or-swim situation, lion cubs have to go through the motions to test water prowess! Naturally, before the four babes at the National Zoo can live at the exhibit with mom later this year, they need to be able to navigate the moat that surrounds it since they still aren't making life jackets in lion sizes. Keepers were on hand to conduct the swim tests one at a time, but this lil one doesn't seem to be a fan of the water quite yet.

The big cats are not known to be expert swimmers and tend to stick to land in the wild, but I must say the cubs look rather adorable in their efforts. See more swim time shots below!
