What will these babies be . . . all grown up?! Examine the lil puppy faces and see if you can predict which breed they'll grow into — so much cute, just chalk it up to learning's sake!
It's that time again — puppy time! To narrow down the adoro faces and breed choices, all the pooches seen here have the word "terrier" in their breed name. If you think you're a pro with these types, then test yourself and see if you can call out the cute.
What's cuter than a baby ocelot? Two baby ocelots! These kittens, Viento and Estrella, made their worldwide (and adorable) debut at the Berlin Zoo. They cuddled next to mom, Sara, and showed off their vivid coats. The two young ocelots, born in mid-November, are absolutely stunning. Check out the double dose of cuteness below!
So many teeny, tiny pups, but how well do you know the members of the Toy Group? Test your ID skills and see a whole lot of cuteness, too!
While it's true that many mammals lick their live young to clean them of amniotic fluids, that's not the only reason! As it turns out, by this mama lion giving some love to her lil one, she's also stimulating its breathing and digestive properties.
What's more is that all cats use licking to cool off which would come in handy in the balmy wilds of Africa (not so much at the zoo) and barbed tongues for easier drinking or lapping in this case. This lesson's done so treat yourself to more sweet photos below!
I've revealed your pick for cutest, and this lil one topped your list for the most unique. Is that a face only a mother could love?
Shrek the hairless wombat had a greenish tint and major fur loss when he was rescued in Australia. Now treated for a fungal condition, he still has about a year until he's released back into the Australian bush. He'll have a full head of hair to add to that beady-eyed cuteness in no time!
High fives all around as a giant panda cub just got officially named "Po" in Madrid! No matter the babe, this ceremony happens the same time in captivity . . . but do you know when that is?Take the Quiz
There were so many lions born at the National Zoo in August and September — seven to be exact! The litters were born to two sisters but proud papa, Luke, is the same for both families! Does that make the mamas sister (lion) wives? What's even more rare is that these are the first cubs to be born in DC in over 20 years and, until their birth, Luke was the only male in the whole place! Whoa.
Since it's impossible to tell them apart as they frolic, check out all the pictures of the cubs playing together in the snow and read more
Two baby lions are definitely twice as nice and bottle-feeding brings the cuteness to a whole new level. While Nero and Niza were born a bit too late to be included in our adorable ensemble poll which is such a tight race and needs some tie breaking votes!
The cubs were born via cesarean and need a helping hand 'til they can join the big lion family.
