There's no doubt that the animal kingdom gives us some of the greatest images in the world. The primal strength of the elephant, the roar of the lion, the stampede of wildebeest, they can all be captured on film and shared with others.
Yet there's another side to the animal kingdom. That side is less about power and majesty and more about the absolute adorable nature of the world.
These 15 photos of baby animals are beyond cute. Each and every one of them will make you wish you could see these animals all day, every day. They're truly amazing.
These two hedgehogs are extremely cute. Of course, you'd need to be very careful not to wake them up otherwise they'd turn into a ball of spines.
The armadillo is becoming an increasingly endangered species thanks to the encroachment of automobiles in its territories. Sad, isn't it? The babies are really adorable.
3. The Echidna
The Echidna is also known as a spiny anteater. It is a very unusual mammal whose closest relative is the duck-billed platypus. Doesn't the baby look a bit like a Pokemon?
If only a crocodile's smile was as enticing as this when it grew up. Of course, this handsome little fella won't be anyone's best friend then.
They may turn out big and a touch on the mean side, but a baby camel looks like it would make for the perfect child's toy doesn't it?
The rabbit can be something of a problem for farmers, but it has to be said it's hard to dislike the little ones. They're just so sweet.
If your heart hasn't melted looking at this baby hamster, we've no idea how to reach you. This is just way too lovely for us.
Chinchillas stay pretty cute when they grow up, but the babies are the undisputed winners in a "want to cuddle" contest. We're in love.
Proving once again that it's not just mammals that can be little sweethearts, this baby turtle emerges from its egg as a picture of perfection.
Just in case you ever meet one in the wild. Pandas are bears and you shouldn't cuddle them. Even when the temptation is this strong.
The baby porcupine looks a lot less spiny and a lot more soft and fluffy, doesn't he? We imagine that his mom's glad of that too.
Proving that birds can be as cute as everyone else, these two baby doves are rather wonderful, aren't they? We want to take them home now.
This is a wombat. He's native to Australia. When he grows up he'll be about 1 meter long and really stocky. Now he's just beautiful.
Just look at that face! You want to reach out and pet him, admit it. We do too. He'll be too tall to pet soon.
This little fellow is too young to be able to change color and disappear. That's good by us because otherwise, you couldn't see how gorgeous he is.
Aren't baby animals simply the cutest? We hope you enjoyed these pictures as much as we did.
