20 Tiny Animals That Will Steal Your Heart

year ago

According to the famous zoologist, Konrad Lorenz, “baby schema” can explain why we find babies, small animals, and tiny objects cute. Baby animals remind us of human children, and our natural instinct is to shelter and protect them. But our reaction to seeing adorable things can also include “cuteness aggression,” a response that makes us want to touch and squish tiny creatures.

We at Bright Side made a list of 20 photos of adorable baby animals that are guaranteed to trigger all the right responses in our brains.
