  • awww all these just make you all warm and fuzzy.


  • Very cute indeed. I like dolphins.

    • Dolphins are my favourite animals too. So clever, sweet and sociable!! :-)


  • I love animals! The sea lion from Washington DC is adorable. And I love the otter too. So sweet!!


  • We love all animals but my favourite is a seal. This little seal pup looks like a Zoe and we hope that will be her new name – Zoe Zoo Pup!


  • All so cute,loved the lion cub!


  • Aw so hard to chose !! They’re all to cute, I could hug them one by one !


  • Mine has to be a monkey. They are so clever, cheeky and cunning. They continue to live as a family unit or community. They have some at the Monarto Zoo near Murray Bridge in the Murraylands region of SA. They are in large enclosures for their own safety, part of it has a roof and is locked at night, partly entirely open space. The keepers hide food out in their open space for them to find. You can tell some of them definitely have their favourite food the way they search and leave some initially. It is an open range zoo, divided into huge sections by secure fencing. They have retained a large acreage solely for consevation management. They mainly have African animals there. Some are almost extinct in their own countries. The zoo, in conjunction with others has breeding programs to help increase numbers. They try not to let them interbreed too much.


  • Lovely photo – but think a baby koala would win hands down.


  • That is a super cute photo. And to think these animals are beaten to death, how could you?!
