These two cubs are having the times of their life! Check out this Mom swim over 400 yards in probably freezing cold water to bring her two kiddos to safer ground! Look…motherly instinct is just about the greatest thing out there, and the need for survival is going to top all…just ask Darwin…but the sheer physical strength that this mama bear is showing is just incredible!
Look at the speed too! She’s going faster than most little fisherman boats out on the lazy river go! Don’t get between her and her cubs any day out there! She’s gonna swim right up and smash you dead! Go mama bear! Swim that river!

Not quite a "piggyback" ride. An onlooker recorded this precious scene of two grizzly bear cubs perched on top of their mother's back as she swam across Lake Aleknagik in Wood Tikchick State Park, Alaska. Grizzlies are excellent swimmers, and their high fat content and oily coats help them stay afloat. A swimming bear with two cubs perched on her back is a rare sight. • • • #animals #animalnews #wildlife #animalsofinstagram #nature
