Sorry, grumpy kitties and husky puppies, little sloths and panda cubs. There's a new cutie in town, and it has a trunk. And this post is filled with so much cute—because baby elephants are so cute—that we're inventing a new word:
Pachydorable adj. [pak-ah-dawr-uh-buhl]
1. A term used to describe just how cute a baby elephant is.
Without further ado, here are all the reasons baby elephants are the new H.B(aby).I.C.:
1. They're so relatable. Watch this baby elephant fall and pretend like it never happened:
(We like this one especially! Because it's hairy!)
2. Because they're surprisingly good soccer players:
3. And otherwise athletically inclined (well, kinda...):
Who cares? It's cute!
4. Because they're little troublemakers. Watch this little guy climb all over his mama:
5. And then this baby elephant fall asleep on his mom's dinner and refuse to wake up:
6. Baby elephants know naps are important. But if they're not sleeping, neither are you:
7. Because they love their daddies:
8. Becuase they think they're lap dogs:
9. And are always down for a good cuddle:
10. All that cuddling and napping sometimes makes a baby elephant late:
Which just makes them cuter! Baby elephants are very cute when they're running late.
11. Because no one loves bath time more than a baby elephant:
12. Except when they don't. (But they're still adorable even when they don't love bath time.)
13. But most baby elephants love any water. Pools:
15. The ocean.
16. Other misc. water, etc.
That all said, you might be thinking, "But puppies and kitties and sloths and pandas can love baths and naps and adorably annoy their parents. Why are baby elephants really cuter?" The answer: Trunks.
17. Especially when they don't know how to use them.
18. Is there anything in the world cuter than a baby elephant learning to use its trunk?
No. No, there is not.
