We Love Baby Animals – Tigers, Hippos, Elephants and Snow Monkeys

March 20, 2009 / 1 Comment

We love babies. Babies are all about hope for the future. You can’t help but think all will be well, or dang it!, we’d best clean up our act so we can make things better so our little ones will have a home here on Earth to enjoy when they are old enough to have their own offspring.

Baby siberian tiger cubs can be seen in Harbin, China. The three cubs must be bottle fed since their mother can’t produce milk. That’s how it is supposed to work. People and animals are to be friends. [Sina]

There’s a baby hippo – yeah, hippos can be small sometimes, too, at least in the beginning. This little fellow was born in the Assam State Zoo and Botanical gardens in Guwahati, India. [Xinhuanet]

This baby elephant gets to enjoy a block of ice on Thailand’s National Elephant Day in Ayutthaya Elephant Palace & Royal Kraal. Yum! [Xinhuanet]

Finally – snow monkeys enjoy an onsen (hot spring) in Jigokudani Monkey Park in Shiga Kogen, Nagano Prefecture, Japan. One little guy has the see no evil part down, eh? [JapanToday]

What do you think about when you see babies, animal or otherwise?

    I often wondered why baby animals are so cute. the only reason I could think of is that it’s a kind of protection against predators? But I might be completely off, where hungry predators don’t care if the prey is cute or not. What do you guys think?
