Total Instinct Leads to First Swim

Nothing but instinct drives the gray seal pups toward the rough ocean and breaking waves. And they have no problem handling it. See this first time swimmer as he ventures out to sea in this short video captured by explore.org camera operator, Katharine. The six-week-old gray seal pup will learn how to hunt, navigate, and survive all alone on the ocean, without help from its parents.
