No matter who you are, how tough you project yourself to be, how emotionally calcified your persona, a picture of a baby animal, lets say a seal pup or maybe a baby bunny, kitten, or owlet, well melt your heart and cause you to pull a dopey face while emitting a sound along the lines of "aahhhhh."
Such is human nature. Just take a look at these pictures and try not to find yourself adrift in a bubble of adorability, unable to resist their fluffy, wuffy appeal. Their downy fur and cute expressions, the way they sit, just like their adult versions, but tinier, adorablier.
There's even a baby octopus. You've not really seen cute until you've seen a mini-octopus.
As for the baby hamster, Jesus, don't even get me started.
But the question remains: which is the cutest of them all?
