She's no circus elephant, but this cute little face just might rival Robert Pattinson's! The female Asian elephant calf was born just a few days ago at the Chester Zoo in northwest England. She doesn't have a name just yet . . . check out more photos of her cute mug, and then tell me what you think she should be called!
Here at PetSugar, we tend to find even the oddest of creatures pretty darn cute — and you usually agree! This newborn giant anteater, who's being shown off with her mama for the first time at the SF Zoo, is definitely up for debate. I think these fascinating little guys — who are close cousins of the sloth — are super cute, but how do you feel about them?
Side note: does anyone else think mama anteater's front paw looks like a giant panda?
I wonder if she'd be willing to share? Tian Tian the giant panda was treated to a delicious fruitcicle — apples and pears frozen in apple juice — at the Smithsonian Institution's National Zoo in Washington DC. And it looks like Tian Tian will get to stick around our nation's capital for a while longer: a new agreement with China, where Tian Tian and partner Mei Xiang are on loan from, allows the pandas to stay at the zoo for five more years.

Don't these tigers look just like giant cozy kitties all snuggled up together? It was a Winter-white snow day at the Bronx Zoo, and while some animals like to play in the snow, these felines are keeping it mellow. See the purrrrty pictures below!
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!
What a Winter wonderland! This elephant enjoys a game of catch . . . with himself. He enjoyed making snowballs to toss at his head, in his mouth, and all over the place. Looks like he's having a blast all alone, no need for an elephant pal here at the Berlin Zoo.
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?

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.
