NORWALK, CT (CNN) - Maybe it was just looking to cool off from the oppressive summer heat?

Whatever the reason, a deer took a swim in the seal tank at an aquarium in Norwalk, CT Tuesday. It paddled a few laps before it was finally able to pull itself out of the water with the help of a worker.

According to the Stamford Advocate, aquarium workers believe the deer got into the exhibit after swimming from the Norwalk River.

That's where it headed back to, apparently unhurt, after getting out of the tank.
