It has been a long while since I had a squee-worthy thing to share with you under the guise of the Cuteness Alert. But I think you will agree that this Dumbo Octopus, so named for its “floppy ears” (which you can’t fully appreciate in this photo) is simply cuteness distilled. Squee.
Will you get a load of the tinier of these two bear cubs? Is that not the tiniest bear you’ve ever seen? This video was filmed in California’s Yosemite National Park earlier this past summer. Can’t believe it’s taken it this long to go viral! Cuteness!
I must confess that I have never even seen a Koala bear this tiny! Squee! According to Zooborns, this little guy is just five months old and has about another month to live in his mother’s pouch before he is ready to roam about on his own. So cute!
