Cute lion cub takes first swimming lesson at zoo

Four little African lion cubs took the plunge at a zoo in Washington in America.

It was their first swimming lesson and although they seemed a bit surprised they soon got the hang of it.

It's zoo rules that all lions, tigers and other big cats learn to swim to keep them safe when they're just weeks old.

See a cub making a splash.
