Whether they’re slam dunking a basketball or making grumpy faces after being woken up from a nap, it’s all about otters. Here’s an adorable baby otter from the Fukuoka City Zoological Garden in Japan enjoying a syringe full of milk and squeaking in glee. You’re welcome! [TODAY]

I Want To Go To There: Tanglewood Farm, A Miniature Animal Petting Zoo

When I found out that Tanglewood Farm, a farm and petting zoo dedicated solely to miniature livestock, existed, I literally squealed with delight. When I found out it was in northern Georgia, which is easily within day trip distance from me, I started hyperventilating. How could I not?! Tanglewood is an entire farm teeming with miniature alpacas, goats, horses, donkeys, cows, chickens, and even a buffalo(!). All told, there are over 100 fun-size animals which visitors can pet, feed, and possibly snuggle with if they really hit it off. Well, I know where I’m going next weekend. Who’s coming with me?

Your Daily Squee: Watch This Baby Alpaca Take His First Steps!

Baby Alpaca Takes First Steps
Look at those shaky little legs!

This tiny little alpaca is named Cypress, and he was born last week at a children’s zoo in Michigan. His very first steps — taken just hours after he was born — were captured on video, as was an adorable nap he took directly afterwards, because Cypress knows that relaxation is integral to a happy, balanced alpaca lifestyle. Those wobbly little legs just kill me! [Zooborns]

15 Reasons Why Baby Animal Photos Are Better Than Real Babies

The photos released of a gaggle of painfully adorable baby pandas in China this week has left me a little more obsessed than usual with all things baby and furry. In photo form, baby animals are pretty much the best thing in the world — all that cuteness with no caretaking required. I love real babies and all, but I’d choose pictures of puppies and tiger cubs instead any day of the week. So, inspired by Jessica’s post this week about how Internet-famous cats are much better than real life cats, are 14 reasons why baby animal photos are better than real babies.  Keep reading »

Your Daily Squee: A Baby Zonkey Was Just Born In Italy!

You guys, I’d like you to meet Ippo the baby zonkey, which is exactly what it sounds like: a donkey/zebra hybrid. Ippo was born a few days ago at an animal reserve in Florence, Italy, after her zebra dad climbed over a fence to get busy with her donkey mom (ahh, romance!). Remember when Gillian Jacobs told us that her personal theme song is “Dominick the Italian Christmas Donkey”? Pretty sure it’s time for an updated version: “Ippo the Italian Summer Zonkey.” Ippo is currently the only zonkey in Italy, which seems like something to celebrate. Salute! [ABC News]

This adorable little rhino is named Anna. She was born just one week ago at the Lion Country Safari in Florida, and had no idea how to properly wallow in the mud until her mom showed her. Luckily for us, the whole thing was caught on camera. And it is adorable. [YouTube via Laughing Squid]

I recently signed up for a Google alert for the phrase “baby goat,” which means whenever anything happens on the internet that concerns baby goats, Google sends me an email. The first baby goat alert I got was about a taxidermist who was making hats out of baby goats. So traumatizing. I almost shut off my baby goat alert after that, but then I got an email about this video of week-old goat kids playing at the Oakland Zoo, and it made it all worth it. [YouTube]

It's A Baaaaa-by

Actually, it’s a baby Mouflon. A Mouflon is a type of wild sheep with big horns. So technically this is a baby lamb, but if you ask me, she looks more like a baby deer. Anyway. The cuteness is indisputable. Go on. Try and dissuade me. Nope, you can’t do it. [YouTube]

21 Baby Animals Being Bottle Fed

I’m in love.  I’m in love with a baby gorilla.  His name is Nyambe and he was rejected by his gorilla mommy, who sounds like a fucking bitch, because LOOK AT THAT FACE. Nyambe now lives at the Cincinnati Zoo, where zookeepers take turns wearing gorilla outfits and snuggling him while “speaking” in various gorilla noises. Also, he wears diapers.

For human babies I know that breast is best. I fully support the right of any Siberian tiger or marmoset to nurse her hungry child in any Walmart, Starbucks, or public park!  But dangit, there is something just too cute about a baby animal sucking on a plastic bottle.  Click through for 20 more…
