20 Adorable Animal Babies You Didn't Even Know Existed (Until Now)
Obviously, you knew all animals had to be babies at some point. Even the most fearsome cobra, wildebeest, or jaguar was at one point a tiny baby. You just probably never realized how stinkin’ cute some of them are at that age. Aside from puppies, kitties, piglets, and baby monkeys, there is a whole world out there of adorable tiny baby animals you totally need to see. Sure, a majestic tiger prowling through the savannah is awe-inspiring, but nothing is more awww-inspiring than a fluffy baby gibbon or a teeny tiny infant bat swaddled tightly against its mother. Some of these animals you may have heard of, some may be brand new. It’s not every day you come across a dik-dik, let alone a baby one.
Alpacas can mainly be found in the Andes of southern Peru, western Bolivia, Ecuador, and northern Chile. These fluffy animals have fur that’s excellent for making things like woven blankets, knit sweaters, hats, scarves, and more. These guys are typically smaller than llamas, which means the babies are extra small and so cute. Look at that face!
Typically, people are afraid of bats. But look at this face! How could you be afraid of this furry face! Occasionally, female bats will give birth to twin bat “pups,” which means double the flying cuteness. People who are fans of bats flock to Austin, Texas, to see thousands of bats fly through the night from under a bridge.
Baby Bearded Dragon
Lizards are already pretty cute, but baby bearded dragons take the cake. They’re so cute we could just gobble them up! Unfortunately, they’re territorial creatures, and if you wanted to keep a few as pets, you’d definitely need to separate the adults from the babies before they gobble them up.
When lemurs are born, they weigh about 100 grams, which is about equal to the weight of a cup of water. Their wide eyes seem to take up most of their little face!
If you’ve ever visited the Floridian coast, perhaps you’ve seen a manatee calf swimming through the water. These young sea cows stay close to their mother for the first one to two years of their life. With their smooshed faces and curious dispositions, they’re some of the friendliest creatures you’d ever find in the water.
There is probably nothing cuter than a baby platypus. Like, this might be the cutest photo you’ll see all day. They look kind of like a duck, kind of like an otter, and kind of like a beaver. The babies are adorably chubby and little and round! These weirdos were first found in Australia, and are actually venomous — but only if they're male.
For the uneducated, a wombat is a plant-eating Australian marsupial. They are insanely adorable and chubby and short-legged. They have been known to smile in photos with tourists! The baby versions of these bear-like creatures are tiny and precious! Frequently American zoos have a wombat habitat you can visit.
