Adorable Swimming Animals at the Zoo

It's hot outside, but the ABQ BioPark Zoo's residents know how to keep it cool for the summer.

What's the best way to cool off on a hot day in Albuquerque? Why, swimming of course! The ABQ BioPark Zoo's animals are definitely using their pools this summer to beat the heat. Here are some of our favorite zoo swimmers.
