Oh gosh, we have a feeling we know what’s going on here. We have seen this scene at the supermarket way too many times. Heck, we have even been the stars of such a scene at the supermarket once or twice. What we think happened here is a classic case of a mother taking her kid grocery shopping.
They start by going through the aisles peacefully until the kid spots something that catches their eye and then it’s pandemonium. Mom will never hear the end of it until the kid gets what they want. Those occurrences happen all too often right by the register where all the exotically flavored bubble gum is. It’s nice to see that elephants go through the same hardship.
The first thing that we thought about when looking at this picture was "holy mozzarella sticks, this is so adorable our hearts might explode." It just looks so intimate and emotional that we can't look away!
The second thing we thought about well not being able to tear our eyes away from the photo was how reminiscent it is of when the child climbs up to the cookie jar placed on top of the fridge only to realize it's too high for them to climb back down. The parent will come and help of course, but they won't be able to stay mad at the kid for looking for a treat.
What you are looking at here is called a muntjac deer. They are among the smaller varieties of deer species and they have some interesting features such as their vampire-like fangs. But today we aren't here to talk about how they're different from us, here to talk about similarities.
We could not help but notice that this muntjac mama encouraging her young to walk on its own looks a lot like a human parent teaching a child how to ride a bicycle. Don't worry sweetheart, no one is letting go until you feel absolutely safe to do this on your own.
So Cute I Could Crush You
Oh, this picture is the very definition of cute aggression! You know, that feeling when you see something so cute you want to smush it? That. As a bonus, it seems like this mama bear is feeling the same about her cub.
Either that or she's trying to get him to take that shower he is so reluctant about. It's the same with human kids too. You spend an hour pleading and negotiating a quick shower with them but once they are in there, under the hot water, they could stay there for hours and never want to leave.
Brought to us from the tropical forests of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, this picture is the perfect way to show us just how human-like monkeys can be. Bonobo monkeys are basically just Bermuda shorts away from being your neighbor from across the street.
This bonobo mother seems to be pondering something deep and meaningful while her baby follows suit. We wonder what she could be thinking about. Maybe it's what kind of fruit she wants to have for lunch or maybe it's the meaning of life. Must be that fruit thing. We bet she already knows the meaning of life.
