Duckling Struggles To Keep Up With Mum On Shiny Floor

Story ByAna LacasaSub EditorJoseph GolderAgencyNewsflash


This is the moment a family of ducks waddles through an empty shopping centre while the fluffy duckling at the back struggles to keep up on the slippery floor.

The cute scene was filmed at the Bahia Sur shopping centre in the town of San Fernando in the province of Cadiz located in the southern Spanish region of Andalusia, and the footage has been viewed 115,000 times.

In the video, the mother duck is seen leading her cute little offspring through the shopping centre entrance before pausing to allow a few of them to catch up after apparently finding the surface hard to walk on.

The family continues its journey through the centre and most of the fluffy ducklings appear accustomed to the shiny floor, however one tiny fellow at the back struggles to keep up.

The struggling duckling constantly loses its footing as the family has to wait for it several times.

The video was shared by the Bahia Sur shopping centre, which is set to reopen as Cadiz prepares for phase 2 of lockdown lifting, with the message: “Even the mother duck and her offspring are looking forward to us reopening.


“A little more patience, we are almost there. We are waiting for you, although the floor may be too clean for some.”

According to the latest figures from the Johns Hopkins University, Spain has registered 232,037 cases of COVID-19 and 27,778 related deaths.
