Lately, the overwhelming amount of political turmoil going on in the world has made us feel a bit downtrodden. It seems like everywhere we look there’s yet another ominous headline about this executive order and that deplorable statement. When does it end!?
Fortunately, when all seems to be lost in a depressing whirlpool of controversial bullshit, we still have one saving grace to turn to…an unlimited amount of adorable baby animals. Zoos across the nation have recently taken to the Twittersphere to have an epic #CuteAnimalTweetOff battle and it’s exactly what we need in our lives right now.
The #CuteAnimalTweetOff is giving the world something to smile about and it all started with the birth of this precious gray seal pup.
WOULD YOU LOOK AT HER!? She’s so cute I can barely handle it, like a little sea-puppy.
The Smithsonian’s National Zoo released the photo to celebrate the arrival of a female gray seal pup, born Jan. 21 to mother Kara. “At 33 years old, Kara is the oldest gray seal to give birth in a Zoo. This pup is the third for Kara and 26-year-old father, Gunther.”
