Side by Side

A mom, and her quite large pup, are swimming side by side keeping pace with our zodiac.

 

The pup is so large that it was hard to tell the difference between the mom and her pup, so I’m guessing that it wasn’t long until the pup is out on his own.  The pups usually stay with their moms for four to six months.  This pup did a lot of swimming on his own.
