National Puppy Day

March 23, 2016

Someone decided it was National Puppy Day. And even the most cynical among us must admit our social feeds are fairly lick-your-face cute this morning. Rather than resist, we've decided to embrace the adorableness. So ... babies!

Top row (from left to right): African elephants in Uganda, an Asian small-clawed otter, chimpanzees in Uganda, and olive baboons in Zambia. Bottom row: ring-tailed lemurs in Madagascar, warthogs in Zambia, giant South American river turtles in Brazil, and Southern white rhinos in Kenya.
