Looking at images of cute, fluffy animals can reduce stress, and "can have powerful effects on attention and concentration."

Baby flamingos are so adorable! They look like little clouds with feet. It's weird to think that when baby flamingos are born, they are without the classic pink color that often defines them. As it turns out, the pink flamingo color isn't a color they're born with, it comes from eating a certain thing: beta carotene. Beta carotene is a red-orange pigment that's found in high numbers with algae, larvae, and brine shrimp, foods that flamingos often eat within their wetland environment. That pigment is extracted from the birds' digestive system and dissolves into fat. The fats are then deposited back into their new feathers as they grow!

Pretty interesting stuff! Now, back to this adorable video of little flamingos running around -- Enjoy!

Animals And Their Madly Adorable Mini-Mes

They really just said copy and paste. And some said copy and paste.. paste... paste... paste... you get the point. And we know what you're going to say, "please spay your pets." And you're not wrong, if you have a pet and you know you won't be able to care for their offspring, you should spay your pet. If you do have the room capacity to house some mini-versions of your pet, we don't see the harm in that either. Besides, if every animal in the world was spayed -- we would never have any baby animals! And that thought is just the worst. 

Here are just images of very proud parents with their adorable mini-mes! We love a good family photo! And animals just do a far better job at taking them than we humans do.

Meet Dash, the cutest little tiger cub at the Wildcat Sanctuary! And when we say "little," we mean it. Dash was tiny! Which, of course, just made him just the cutest thing we've ever seen! This little guy went from being a baby, with his eyes closed and ears folded down to a stunning strong tiger. 

This is Dash's transformation from that itty bittiness to him now, and the journey is just as magical. If this video doesn't make your heart scream due to its overwhelming cuteness, you may want to look into that! You can also check out the Wildcat Sanctuary on Facebook

Time To Take In The Weekly Dose Of Cute (#126)

It's officially the second Monday of the week and we're already feeling burnt out. Thankfully, we have our handy-dandy cheatsheet for Tuesday. Wanna know what it is? You guessed it! It's a mega serotonin boost in the form of adorable animal pics and videos! And yes, it does help in cheering us up and giving us the energy we need to carry on. 

Animals just seem to have that magic. I don't know about you, but for us, if we're feeling down about things and just so happy to see a dog out of the corner of our eyes, we feel a burst of that happiness. And even more so, when an animal seems to know you're feeling down and unexpectedly come to comfort you. If that doesn't cheer you up, you may want to look into that because that feeling is pure magic. 

We try to re-create that comforting magic once a week here with new animal pics and vids every week. We hope you enjoy it!

Heartwarming Collection Of Itty Bitty Kitties

The Itty Bitty Kitty Committee has returned and has returned with more itty-bittiness than ever before! Nothing quite fills the soul with all those aww's and warm feelings like a patch of insanely small kittens! Seriously, how are they so small? Each time we think about it, our brains cannot comprehend just how tiny and just how adorable. 

IFor cat owners, it's crazy to think that at one point, your cat was once this small (even though it always short-lived) and they can grow into some hefty chonkers! But all kittens are born tiny and were just here to look at them and remember our babies were once so tiny.

Somedays, all you really need is a hug. OK, somedays are most days, and these adorable baby goats know exactly what is up! Hugs make us feel all warm, safe and loved. And we're certain that's exactly how these goats feel when being hugs and that would just make this video 1000x more adorable. 

The only thing that could possibly bother us about this near-perfect video is the fact that the not-so-baby-but-still-adorable alpaca looks to be in need of a hug too and doesn't seem to receive one. Who knows, maybe before or after this video, the man did hug the alpaca. We can only hope.

Time To Take In The Weekly Dose Of Cute (#125)

Ah, yes, Tuesday again. The week's second Monday. Mondays are pretty sucky, we can all agree on that but sometimes it feels like Tuesdays are even worse than Mondays. "Why?" you might ask yourself. And the reason is quite simple. Tuesday's are the week's second Monday's and what makes the sometimes worse than Monday is the fact that you no longer have the rest of the weekend behind you. 

So you're more exhausted on Tuesday than you would be Monday. Therefore, Tuesdays are actually worse. And there's only one way we can think of to help energize you and give you that boost of serotonin you've been searching for... cute animals

Gallery Of Smiling Adorable Baby Puffer Fish

Turns out, baby Puffer Fish are heckin' adorable! Why didn't any of you tell us?! They either have this cute little smile and look like a wee baby or somehow look like an adorable old man. Either way, they are precious and must be protected. 

We don't often feature fish and it's a shame because some of them are really cute and deserve a chance in the spotlight! And now it's time for the Puffer Fish to shine! Baby Puffer Fish, that is. 

Honestly, we're not entirely sure all the fish images below are in fact Puffer Fish, but their cuteness got to us anyways and we felt the need to share.

This baby skunk has the cutest little stomps and it's one of the cutest things we've seen in a hot minute! This stomp first begins when the baby skunk learns to stomp his hands, and soon enough, he begins to do handstands as he stomps his back feet!

If that isn't the most precious thing we've heard or seen today, then you must live a really great life with cuteness around you! This little fella was rescued and cared for by the amazing MoonShine Wildlife Rehab, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to "rehabilitating sick, injured or abandoned wildlife and releasing them back into their appropriate habitat." Follow them on Instagram to see how you can help donate to their cause

It's the little things in life that make it so beautiful, like a baby elephant taking a moment to roll around and play in the sand. 

Meet Pyi Mai, a recently rescued baby elephant who can be seen here enjoying her first-time sand bath! In the video, you'll see Pyi Mai wholesomely rolling about as her mother watches over her. These beautiful elephants were rescued and currently reside at the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai province, Northern Thailand. 

Wishing this beautiful mother and her adorable baby elephant a wonderful life full of happiness!

Oh lawd, she comin'!

This video may only be 11 seconds love but it certainly checks off a lot of what we're looking for in videos! Number 1, cuteness, check. Number 2, family interaction, check. Number 3, an element of surprise, check. 

If you can't figure out what the element of surprise was, it was the absolute unit of a seal that came running... err, body-hopping? The absolute unit that came body-hopping to the baby harp seal. Overall, this video is a delicious treat and we loved every second of it. Be sure to turn those sounds on to hear what a baby harp seal sounds like!

Suka the Polar Bear has recently given birth to twin cubs at the Detroit Zoo! This is amazing news, not only because polar bears are declined out in the wild, but because Suka has had two lost pregnancies in the past and this time she finally welcoming twins! 

ZooBorns has some updates about the new mama and new cubs, "The cubs were born in a specially-designed, private maternity den away from the other bears. It is equipped with infrared video cameras that allow staff to monitor the mother and cubs without disturbing them. On November 19, it was observed that one of the cubs was becoming inactive and appeared to be weak. The staff allowed Suka out of the den so that the weak cub could be retrieved. 

The cub, a female, was taken to the Detroit Zoo's Ruth Roby Glancy Animal Health Complex where she was examined by veterinarians and given fluids and formula. She has continued to receive around-the-clock care and bottle feeding. At two days old, she weighed 556 grams (1.2 pounds). Today, she is 5.12 kilograms (11.3 pounds), and she has graduated from an incubator to a "playpen". She will eventually go back to live in the Arctic Ring of Life habitat. It is not yet known if she can be reunited with her mother and sibling, but eventually, she will live with other bears. Meanwhile, we continue to monitor Suka and the cub she is caring for. She has been a very attentive mom; continuously nursing, grooming, and cuddling her cub, with only short water and bathroom breaks. Both cubs are currently in private, behind-the-scenes areas and are not viewable by guests."

We pray that this newborn cub is healthy and living a long happy life alongside her mom and sibling!
