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.

Sweet-Faced Kitten Finds Forever Home And Endless Love

Be still our hearts! This sweet-faced kitten is so gosh darn adorable, we're melting right where we stand. 

Meet Penelope Fern, a kitten born was a cleft lip who was found outside all alone. She was brought into Meow Village, an all-volunteer feral cat rescue organization located in Aurora, Oregon.

Meow Village told Love Meow, "A TNR (trap-neuter-return) rescuer spotted her while out trapping cats for spay and neuter. It was obvious that the kitten would need extra assessment. A few calls were made and she was in the arms of a Meow Village volunteer within hours."

After a nice, warm bath to get rid of the fleas, the sweet kitten was feeling better and soon dozed off into a peaceful sleep with a belly full of food. 

Selina, a volunteer at Meow Village told Love Meow, "This kitten has a loving sweet spirit. She eats and drinks just great, and it took no time for her to learn the litter box."

Next the kitten was taken to see a specialist about her condition and she was diagnosed with hydrocephalus (water on the brain), blindness, and ataxia (a neurological condition). It is likely more of her symptoms will appear as she ages and she will need special care because of it. However, Penelope is just as happy as any other cat and shows zero signs of suffering. 

Desirae, a staff member at the veterinary hospital, saw Penelope and fell madly in love with her.

What a young beauty! Introducing Ahava, a three-month-old female snow leopard cub that has made her public debut at the Brookfield Zoo in Illinois.

Snow leopards are one of the rarest wildcats to come across, sadly, only as few as 4,000 snow leopards still remain in the wild. They are often solidarity creatures, who can be referred to as the "ghost of the mountain," due to their scarce and elusive sightings. 

Find out how you can help protect these elusive beauties and ensure their survival for generations to come at WWF

Baby Dik-Diks Are So Tiny It Hurts

At just about 15 inches tall, Dik-Dik's might just be the cutest animal around! Dik-dik's are actually the world's smallest antelope species, a "dwarf" antelope, as if they couldn't be any cuter -- these animals are fun-sized forever. 

They are commonly found in southern Africa and have tiny tufts of hair that are small horns, much like a giraffe. The males have the horn and the females don't, just like deer. 

Dik-dik's seem to be a mix of everything we love and combined into one insanely cute animal.

Summer Of Kittens: Mountain Lion Baby Boom Near Los Angeles

The Santa Monica Mountains near Los Angeles is getting plenty of kitty attention this summer! According to the National Park Service, 13 kittens were born to 5 different mothers between May and August. 

It's the biggest mountain lion baby boom to occur in the past 18 years within such a short timeframe! National Park Service such a short period of time for the past 18 years! 

Jeff Sikich, a wildlife biologist, said in a previous statement, "This level of reproduction is a great thing to see, especially since half of our mountains burned almost two years ago during the Woolsey Fire."

When the story was shared on Twitter, a few users were wondering if this new kitten boom was in any way related to the pandemic and vanishing foot traffic. There's no way to know for sure but if so, we're glad to hear of another happy outcome from this year's madness. 

Check out some of the insanely adorable kittens below!

Baby Hippos Deliver Happos (12 Gifs)

Happos, the hippo version of happiness. Yes, we just made it up, and no, we aren't particularly proud of it. 

Hippos! Also known as possibly nature's most adorable murder machines. That's right. According to BBC, an estimated 500 people per year are killed by this giant and angry blob. They are known to be aggressive and very dangerous. But as we watch vids or look at pictures of baby hippos, they look so derpy and adorable, we can't help but melt. 

If we ever do come across a hippo in the wild, we will be cautious. Until then, we can admire these cute (but deadly) animals from afar.
