There is absolutely nothing the internet enjoys more than videos featuring cute animals and birds. In a short clip that goes around the internet late, a baby seal is seen taking their first swimming lesson and it’s so cute.

Rex Chapman posted the 42-second clip to Twitter and it has already been viewed over 3 million times so far. As seen in the clip, an instructor began by dipping the baby seal by its tail into a puddle.

The seal looked rather nervous and looked up at the instructor for reassurance. Slowly and steadily, the seal was thrown into the pool as it began to swim with confidence. After a while, the instructor removed his hand from the seal as he waded through the water on his own.

“This baby seal introduced to the water for the very first time is the sweetest thing you’ll see today,” is the caption of the post.
