62 Heartwarming Animal Photos And The Story Behind Them
A baby hippo sticking its tongue out
Our next entry in the Animal Cuteness Olympics is this baby hippopotamus, a major attraction at the Higoshiyama Zoo in Japan. Hippopotami are not usually considered cute animals, but their babies are every bit as adorable as the adults aren't. (We could say that about plenty of humans, couldn't we?) Enjoy the cuteness now, as this youngster will grow up to weigh as much as two tons, if a male, or a ton and a half if a female. Adult hippos are also highly aggressive and dangerous, and they literally fling their poop all over the place to mark their territory. Do not be suckered by this baby hippo.
