“Time for a nice cozy nap after all that skipping about.”

I was never really that into Cute Overload! :). Too much baby talk. Too many hamsters.

But ZooBorns I can get behind—“the newest and cutest exotic animal babies from zoos and aquariums around the world.”


It’s like cute stuff meets David Attenborough! Oh, and what’s this? “Tiny Ocelot Kittens Born at the Woodland Park Zoo”? If I enjoy your kitten photographs, ZooBorns, maybe I will just go down to my neighborhood zoo and HANG OUT WITH THOSE TINY OCELOTS IN PERSON!!! Get back to me when you can personally invite me to that guinea pig’s birthday party, Cute Overload.

I heart the baby beluga whale!

That is one cute armadillo baby.

It is sometimes strange to me that humans have such a powerful ability to find cuteness in non-human creatures. I suppose that the features that we find cute in human babies are paralleled in other mammal species (since those other species depend on mothers caring for their young.)

But that doesn't explain why honeybees are cute and other insects are not.

I got to hold a baby leopard once. They're damn cute, but even the kittens got two-inch fangs and vicious claws. When they do that cute little kitten thing where they nibble on you? It removes flesh.

@4: how dare you support zoos.

some animals are ok in zoos. armadillos, WGAF. but seeing the wolves at woodland park makes me very sad.
