Meet the Cat That Survived Three Disastrous Shipwrecks

Hey team!

I’ve got a great new video up on the channel today! I’m debuting a new segment in my Animals for Smart People series called Youtube Animals—all about incredible animals of history! I will be intermingling these videos with my usual science content on the channel!


Sam (his real name was Oskar) was a cat that survived not one, not two, but three separate shipwrecks during the time of World War II. He may just be one of the luckiest cats in history! (While his comrades on the ships were perhaps not so lucky.) Because of his incredible ability to survive shipwrecks, he was dubbed Sam the Unsinkable!

I hope you enjoy! As always, these videos are 100% classroom-friendly, so please share them with the educators in your life (or with your own curious kids!)

Have a great week!
