Adorable Baby Animals
Baby animals are just adorable. No one can stay immune to their charm. How many times have you heard people go Aww when they see a baby animal? Every time, every time, because they are so cute and you wish to adopt them.
1. Baby Potto
The potto is a type of loris who lives in Africa, never leaves it’s trees, and is nocturnal. In some English-speaking parts of Africa it is known as a “softly-softly.”
2. Baby Klipspringer
22″ at the shoulder, these antelope are called Klipspringers — a word that translates literally to “rock jumper.” They live in the rockiest parts of Africa and they walk on the very tips of their hooves like ballet dancers!
3. Baby Agouti
Agoutis live in Mexico, Central America, and South America. They are related to guinea pigs, but have longer legs. Their secret party trick is that they are one of the only animal species that can open brazil nuts without tools.
4. Baby Pangolin
Pangolins are scaly anteaters who like curling up into balls, eating ants and termites, and — when they’re babies — riding around on their mom’s tail. Their pet peeve is being mistaken for an artichoke.
5. Baby Owston’s Civet
Civets are lithe little cat-like creatures who live in the tropics of Africa and Asia. The civet produces a musk which has traditionally been used as a fragrance and stabilizing agent for perfume. The civet musk was the basis for the original Chanel No. 5 perfume, but it has been replaced with a synthetic substitute because of ethical concerns.
6. Baby Bongo
Bongos are a type of antelope classified into two subspecies: the lowland bongo and the mountain bongo. Neither is percussive.
7. Dhole Puppy
The endangered dhole is also called the Asiatic wild dog or Indian wild dog. They are highly social predators who bravely attack animals much larger than them such as boar, buffalo, and even tigers. They live in South and Southeast Asia.
8. Baby Dik-Dik
Dik-diks are little tiny African antelopes. Fully grown, they stand approximately 12-16 inches at the shoulder. They enjoy whistling.
9. Baby Gundi
Gundis or “comb rats” are small rodents. They live in the rocky deserts in northern Africa. They are social animals who live in colonies of up to a hundred or more individuals. They like to make a lot of noise.
10. Spoon-Billed Sandpiper Chick
The Spoon-billed Sandpiper is a critically endangered small wading bird who breeds in Russia and winters in Southeast Asia.
11. Echidna Puggle
Important facts about echidnas: 1. they are mammals but they lay eggs, like a platypus!, 2. although their diet consists mostly of ants and termites and they are sometimes known as “spiny ant eaters,” they are not related to true anteaters. 3. they live in Australia and New Guinea, 4. their name cames from a monster in Greek mythology. 5. THE BABIES ARE KNOWN AS PUGGLES.
12. Baby Pika
Pikas are small mammals related to rabbits and hares. They are sometimes known as “whistling hares” due to a very high-pitched alarm call. They spend the summer collecting and storing food to eat over the winter in a personal haypile of dried vegetation.
13. Baby Golden Brushtail Possum
Although this possum species are very common in Australia and New Zealand, the “golden” type — one of four different color variations found within the species — is harder to come by. They are rarely seen in the wild because their brightly colored fur makes them susceptible to predators.
14. Baby Silky Anteater
The smaller relative of the more famous giant anteater lives in the rainforests of Mexico, Central, and South America. They are nocturnal and arboreal, and shyly avoid most of their predators. If cornered, however, they pack a mean punch with those little claws.
