We all know those baby animals are so cute they make us squeal and babble when we see them, but what exactly makes an animal adorable? Well, it might be the fact that they are usually perfectly round and extra fluffy and humans associate these traits with the animals being friendly and harmless. Yes, it may sound weird, but to us, humans, round objects evoke exactly those feelings. It also might be that cute baby animals are helpless, thus making us want to take care of them. Also, combine that with their dewy-eyes and silly demeanor, and voila, cuteness overload, erasing our capabilities of reasoning, happens. And while losing your senses might not be the best idea, everyone should allow themselves to go a bit bonkers for these adorable animals. That's why we have compiled a list of the cutest baby animals, that will make your heart and brains melt in the best way possible.

Not only you'll find the classical specimens of cute animals such as kittens and puppies, but we've also included birds, exotic and farm animals for you to drool over. So scroll down for some cute pictures and let your ever-working cranium to de-active for five minutes, submerging yourself in the most adorable surrender ever.

Baby squirrels are not afraid of humans. If you can't find a fallen baby's nest, take it to a rescue. Rabies is almost unknown in squirrels, so just because it walks up to you doesn't mean it's sick. It's looking for help. This is how a lot of people have ended up with half-tame squirrels...they live outdoors but remember the people who rescued them.
