Elephants are beautiful and majestic creatures! Their intensely large size shows everyone that they are not to be messed with! Their big floppy ears are nothing short of awwdorable. And the bonds that elephants form between parents and children are truly awesome. We don't see too much elephant content these days, but we are always happy when we do.

Today we had the pleasure of stumbling across this very cute very wholesome video of a baby elephant learning from elder family members how the heck to eat a pumpkin. We were impressed to see swift success! We can't get enough of this sweet baby elephant and we love watching how bonded this family is together.

Moments when wildlife encounter civilization are always awwdorable yet mildly scary at the same time. We, as animal lovers, want nothing more than to go out there and pet these beautiful creatures. But, we know we should be respectful and not interfere, not matter how cute they might be. Amazingly, if you do that for long enough, you might even make friends with a wild animal.

Patrick Conley on YouTube knows what that feels like. They have had a beautiful bear visiting them for years - you can see the whole journey on that channel. And one day, she decided to being her itty bitty awwdorable bear cubs to visit her lifelong human friends. You can feel the excitement, not just from the humans but from the cubs as well. And we're as excited as they are.

There are times in the animal world where animals make such unique families and friendships with each other, and this is one of the newest, most wholesome ones. This amazing hen has taken a whole lotta newborn kittens under its wings (literally) and has been taking care of them alongside their cat momma.

Even cat moms need a break sometimes, and trusting their babies with another animal is a challenge. But, the absolutely unique interspecies friendship created between these two animals is strong enough to withstand their differences and give us one of the most heartwarming family videos we've seen in a while.

Roman is a big doggo and a goofy one at that! His mom claims he is easily identifiable by his clumsiness. This little family then came across Sugar, a bunny in need of rescue. Roman and Sugar hit it off right away! The introduction process was very quick. Sugar would hop around the sun room and explore, Roman would allow her to jump on him and check him out!

Their owner recounts one moment in which Sugar was bouncing around checking Roman out, when he then rolled over onto his back and flashed his mama with a huge toothy grin. From that moment their bond just grew stronger and stronger. We love to watch wholesome bonds between sweet animals who just want to give each other love. Simply awwdorable!

One of our favorite things to see in the animal world are animal families and the bonds they have. Animal mommas being stern yet loving, animal dads meeting their cubs for the first time, being playful yet protective, teaching them the ways of the world - these are always such precious moments. And these first family meetings are the most precious in our humble opinions - the moments of recognition and acceptance. 

This cat dad is meeting his newborn kittens for the first time in this video, and the love is instant - and not just between the dad and the kittens but also between the cat dad and the mom. It's wholesomeness galore, and you're not even ready for it.

Tumblr Thread: Crocodile Dads Are The Best

We could never imagine that we'd ever say "awwww" about a crocodile. They are so scary, and omg, if we ever met one in real life, we would run away shaking. But, time and time again, the internet manages to convince us that these terrifying animals are not that bad. From the time that we all celebrated the 120th birthday of the oldest known Nile crocodile, to the time that we all giggled and laughed and felt embarrassed about the hilarious way that crocodiles actually look like underwater, to the time that we fell in love with crocodile skinks because they look like tiny dragons

And now, through this tumblr thread, we learn that crocodile dads are super protective of their little babies and carry them around on their backs - in groups of hundreds. It's adorable. Crocodiles are adorable. Shocking, right?

tumblr thread about crocodile dads carrying their babies | thumbnail includes a picture of a crocodile carrying many crocodile babies and a section of a tumblr post 'Water - kaijutegu Follow Everyone in the notes is saying mama, but that's dad. See the lump on his nose? Only males have those. It's actually where they got their name; the lumps tend to resemble earthenware cooking pots called ghara. What we're seeing here is a really good dad. This is par for the course for gharials, though-'

Get ready for one of the most heartwarming rescue stories you've ever seen. After being abandoned by its birth family, this itty bitty kitten was left all alone. Luckily, he found himself in good hands and was not only rescued but also taken into the most loving forever home. 

Of course, the transition was not the easiest, it takes time for cats, even as young as this one, to get used to their new surroundings. But eventually, this little fluffball realized that what he had, both with this human and with the rest of his cats, is something incredibly special - it is a big, loving, wholesome family

If we know anything about these adorable overgrown wolf goofballs is that when wolves love, they love hard. This heartwarming video captures just that. With the snow covering everything around these two wolves in The Wolf Conservation Center in South Salem, the male cleans snow off his lovely mate, disregarding the fact that he himself is covered in snow too. 

Grooming her in this way not only strengthens their familial bond but it's also an intimate gesture that reaffirms their unique bond as mates. Their love helps us appreciate the love we have surrounding us a bit more too, and really, we can only hope to have as loving a relationship as theirs.
