We are all familiar with the cat purrito by now, but have you ever seen a baby bat wrapped up like a burrito? It's almost too cute to handle! When these baby flying foxes arrived at the Australian Bat Clinic due to extreme heat events that separated them from their mothers, they were well taken care of -- as you can see from the video. 

The video may be on the older side but something so cute needs to live on and on. If you watch this entire video and have no emotions about it, you may want to go get that checked out because the cuteness meter is through the roof!

After Six Years Of Trying, Pelican Couple Welcomes Baby

This is so incredibly sweet!

Mr. Pelican was first found on Chambers Island in Maroochydore, Queensland, constantly getting in trouble. He would get entangled in fishing lines, and would constantly need help. As Twinnies Pelican and Seabird Rescue, in Australia, continued to come to aid him, one day that came to find him missing a wing due to a severe injury, and was taken into Twinnies Sanctuary. 

Since then, Mr. Pelican has found a partner and has been trying to have a baby. For six years, Mr. Pelican and his partner have been trying, they would dutifully watch and sit on their eggs, share the incubation period together, and no egg would ever hatch. 

Until now. This past September, when a caretaker at Twinnies placed a fellow pelican's egg within Mr. Pelican's nest, and it hatched. 

Twinnies stated on their Facebook page, "Mr. Percival has never given up trying to have a baby pelican chick. We felt so sorry for him as it's so sad when he's seen the others around him seeing baby pelicans. So we did this amazing thing for him as we wanted to make him really happy this time."

This video is adorable and relaxing all at once. Last year, Point Defiance Zoo welcomed its first beaver kit and it's so heckin' cute, they made this video just to show off its cuteness!

Not that we blame them at all, we can look at this little kit all day. Even though this video is a year old, the beaver kit was born perfectly healthy and living well with parents Walnut and Nutmeg. Parents Walnut and Nutmeg seem to be very chill, according to this video, letting the humans babysit as they get some more naps in.

Wholesome Mini-Gallery Of Baby Chipmunks

We often share images of squirrels but this time we decided to dedicate some love to their adorable look-a-likes -- chipmunks! Sure, chipmunks don't have that bushy tail we're all in love with, but they're so stinkin' cute, and small, we love them just as much! 

Chipmunks are smaller than squirrels and they come with some distinct stripes. Both chipmunks and squirrels are part of the same family of rodents but they actually have so little in common with one another than they never really are seen together. 

Chipmunks can fit into the palm of our hands and these following images of that will melt anyone's heart... no matter how cold and frozen it may be.

This is simply too cute! Whilst in a mint garden, this little ducking has promptly fallen asleep after a flower hat is placed on its head. 

The duckling was born on the Mother The Moutain Farm, where two young women work on their organic farm on Bundjalung Country / Byron Bay, Australia. In the video description, Mother The Mountain Farm left this beautiful and inspiring message, "We are the third generation of our family to care for this land and are always so grateful as we pick fruit from the trees planted by our grandparents and tended by our parents. Grateful to still be nurtured by those who are no longer here. We hope that when we are gone, those who come after will still be fed by the meaning of our actions, the trees we plant, the land we care for. "

You can follow Mother The Mountain Farm on Instagram for more about their care for animals during their journey. And of course, more adorable ducklings!

This year is on the older side but it's so beautiful not to share. When Clara, the orangutan gave birth to baby Clarita, Clarita was kidnapped by a dominant male. At the Orangutan Jungle School, caretakers reintroduce Clara to her stolen baby but worry she will reject her.

But Clara was impatient and wanted to hold her baby, that much is obvious. Just looking into the eyes of this mother as she finally holds her baby... it's enough to make a grown man cry.

Hyenas can be super duper cute! And a hyena cub? Always cute. 

Here's a mother who loves her baby and shows it by grooming and snuggling with the sweet cub. That moment when the cub flops down onto her.. endless squeals! Animal relationships with their mothers are just so gosh-darn special, we can hardly stand it. 

If you look closely, it almost looks like the mom is sleeping throughout the whole video. As if our hearts could handle any more cuteness.

These adorable, and very squeaky, flamingos are on the go and they aren't stopping! 

Last year, five baby flamingos learned how to walk at the Oregon Zoo, and it was the cutest. These 2-week-old "muffin-sized" chicks, were the first of the greater flamingo species to be hatched at the zoo. 

Get ready, because we weren't prepared for this level of cuteness at that adorable little fluffy butt shake!

We were first introduced to this adorable orange kitten, Pixel, in the 'most dangerous kitten in the world' video. After realizing that title was dead on, being that Pixel is so overwhelmingly cute that he can kill us due to cuteness overload, we then saw this munchkin meet a baby chick and interact with it. 

It's safe to say Pixel has stolen our hearts and has no plans on returning it.

And now, we have the pleasure of viewing the cutest naptime video of all, Pixel and baby chick. Soak it in, folks, it doesn't get any better than this.

This is just too cute for words! Turns out, bear cubs play just the same as human kids! They'll climb, rolls around, jump, explore their surroundings, and just enjoy each other's company! 

The video itself is 8 years old, and the camera work is definitely shaky, but the content is simply too good and too cute to forget about. A mean... a playground full of adorable bear cubs? Sign us up!

Golden Lion Tamarin: Adorable Monkeys Of Sunshine

Monkeys are naturally adorable so we needed to take a moment to appreciate the monkeys made from sunshine rays -- the golden lion tamarin

The golden lion tamarin gets its name from its lion-like thick mane and it's beautiful silky, long golden fur. It's an unusually bright and striking animal that can only be found in Rio de Janeiro, and even there only in fragmented forest habitats. 

The golden lion is an endangered species with only around 2,500 left of them in the wild. Due to Brazil's rainforest disappearing over agriculture, industry, and the ever-expanding logging, sadly, the golden lion tamarin is in danger of disappearing along with it.
