This flooded river is no match for these deer.

Unlike us domesticated organisms, wild animals have to face harsh weather conditions head on, and have become well-suited to do so overtime.

Whether they're at the mercy of a hurricane, a tornado, extreme heat or, in this case, a flash flood, they have to tap into their instincts to make it through.

The following clip shows a smaller herd of deer crossing the Minnesota River near Savage, Minnesota. Despite the river's deep, swift current, these deer were able to pick up speed and zoom across the water like they'd done it a million times before.

Watch the video below:

Did you see how fast those deer were moving through the water? Where did they learn to swim like that?

Also, what was driving them to move across the river in the first place? It makes you wonder which deer led them into the water, and if the others are bitter they ever followed.

Fortunately, though, it appears these deer had no problem getting across and made short work of the rough river.
