This crafty mother was not about to become a sitting duck for traffic, instead leading her 11 ducklings over a zebra crossing in front of stunned onlookers.
The cute flock was spotted by accounting student Kenny Pang, 20, as they waddled past students and over the crossing at Lancaster University campus on Friday afternoon.
The confident newborns followed their mum obediently as people laughed and smiled at the adorable display.
Kenny from Doncaster, South Yorkshire, said: “It was super cute to watch them take the zebra crossing like humans would. I couldn’t believe it so knew I had to film it.
