Everything Is Cuter When It’s a Baby

Posted by , under SNAPSHOTS

Let’s put on a cutey pageant. The contestants will all be animals, competing against their baby selves. Not puppies and kittens though! Science is already working on harnessing the power of their cuteness as a renewable energy source, so it’s a foregone conclusion that they’re filthy stinking cute. We’ll look at more unsual animals for this battle.

Some of you may have seen some of these baby animal pictures before, but I’ve provided a side-by-side visual match-up between baby and adult, so you can be the judge! (I’ve also provided captions to bias you toward my opinion.)

Cute funny baby animals everything is cuter when it's a baby

So that proves it once and for all. Even though some critters can be really ugly when they’re first born, we all know that just means they’re going to grow up to be living nightmares. So! Everything is cuter when it’s a baby. Especially babies! Case closed.

Note: For those of you who belong to the Smartyass Pantius species of reader, I know I may have matched up the wrong species. This is about cuteness, people! Adorabalis Cuteus is all we’re interested in here.

    I think this is true because I was cuter when I was a baby.

  2. I’ve only gotten cuter with age.

  3. zchamu says:

    How does one even go about getting a photograph of a baby puffer fish?

  4. I kept my cute factor, thank you very much!

  5. Shannyn says:

    I think your baby frog might actually just be a tiny frog. They might even be toads, I’m not sure. Baby toads and frogs are tadpoles, doy!

    I don’t want a hedgehog anymore.

    we owned some sugar gliders before. they are fun pets, if trained right. they can also fly around the house if you let them. they are one of the few that are cute as a baby and as an adult

  8. Amy says:

    Sugar Gliders are like tiny flying squirrels! They are very cute, I was at a library with my kids once and a little girl had one with her. The kids of course then asked if they could have one. Though they are the one pet I think my husband would really like. Who wouldn’t want a flying squirrel as a pet?

    • Lacey S says:

      My hubby begs for one constantly, but with two indoor cats… yah, not going to happen. We did find out that there is a Wallaby farm near us tho…. tempting. Our bunny managed to hold her own (OK, the cats trembled in fear), so many a wallaby could as well?

      • KJ says:

        Lacey, i am a little confused… A sugar glider isn’t a wallaby..??

        And i am sure the “frog” is a toad (YUCK)

        Hermit crabs *shudder* ugly at all ages!! The bat too, I rather liked bats until today dammit.

        This post was rather eye-opening. Cheers fella’s, keep up the funny work.

    • Andy says:

      Something that flies and doesn’t molt and isn’t a bat? Sign me up!

  9. Laurie says:

    Strong evidence here that you are correct. My husband wants a sugar glider for some unknown reason, he is not a weirdo or anything, he just thinks they are cute..Baby owls are so cute its ridiculous!

  10. Jane says:

    Baby keas. A baby kea is definitely not cuter.

  11. I learned this in a psych 101 class at Georgetown and had to look at skull measurements, positioning, and the ratio of eye size to head size. I’m trying very hard to not link to articles proving all babies are cute so their parents don’t eat or abandon them. Really trying hard…

  12. Evonne says:

    Cuteness overload!! (in the left column anyway)…

    Ever seen a baby praying mantis?? I for one am not into bugs but hubby insisted once on keeping a praying mantis – and then it went and had babies…being a sucker for all things mini I might be convinced otherwise now :oP

  13. A sugar glider may look cute, but they have teeny tiny razor sharp claws and love to climb on you. And if you get a boy, when they like you they mark their territory… all the time. And it stinks! Plus, they are nocturnal and if you try to play with them during the day they make the sound of an angry chainsaw. Mine was named Nimrod… for good reason.

  14. Karen says:

    Just because it is cute as a baby, does not mean it is sweet as a baby.

  15. CourtneyS says:

    I”m sorry but isn’t a “baby frog” technically a tadpole? And the smaller version would be a young adult frog? I scanned to see if any one said something-but I’ll be honest didn’t look that closely.

    Either way frogs/toads are gross.

  16. Caitlin says:

    I want that baby hedgehog to be my screensaver. I literally cannot think a negative thought while looking at those tiny pink feet!

  17. I will forever think of octopi as coughed up organs with eyes… thanks.

  18. Sasha says:

    All I can think of when I see the baby puffer is that it will probably die. Since it’s out of the water, it’s puffing because it’s stressed. Puffers often die after they puff. This one also can’t breathe right now… Not knocking on the post, just the asshole who did that to the baby puffer…

    • missy says:

      They dont die when they puff up lol it takes a lot of time for them to recover but they wont die. i have had many puffer fish and even all the other animals on here except a bat. Growing up my dad loved exotic animals along with regular domestic animals mainly reptiles but he went through his phases with everything. I absolutely hated the monitor lizard but can’t help but laugh when i think of the time the police came to my parents house to check on my curfew when i was on supervision and my dad had him outside for a little while on his leash and harness when he broke free and chased the police off the property, thank god my dad had a permit for him lol. The prairie dog he had was pretty mean too. I kinda miss living with them though seeing as now i have a boring regular cat and four small children.

      • missy says:

        i forgot to mention they also usually puff up when they die which may have led you to believe that they die when they puff up but it’s really the other way around.

  19. Holly says:

    Sugar Gliders remind me of the puckmarin alien from Flight of the Navigator; therefore, I want one, too.

  20. Bron says:

    Your “frog” is really a toad, please correct!!

  21. Baby Names says:

    hahaha i can’t stop laughing this post is just awesome !!!

  22. Silvana says:

    I’m pretty sure that the adult “frog” is a toad πŸ˜‰

  23. April says:

    My dad always said the definition of “cute” was short, fat, and bald, so he still qualified on two of the three… he wasn’t short anymore… πŸ˜‰

  24. lee says:

    i cant see the pictures

  25. Cat Names says:

    I agree with you, these little animals seems adorable!
