This is definitely a case of right place, right time.
Jared Buzzell, a Maine native, was apparently searching for wild mushrooms one day when he saw a porcupine get hit by a car.
He had heard that a valuable mineral used in Chinese medicine, a bezoar, could be in the porcupine's stomach.
So he cut open the dead animal but didn't find a bezoar inside… he found a
When it comes to babies and puppies, each one is cuter than the next.
So when you have a tiiiiny bulldog puppy licking the heck out of a super cute baby, it's all sorts of wonderful.

When a baby rockhopper is born at the Shedd Aquarium, it's kind of a big deal.
Such a big deal, in fact, that they throw a whole party when the time comes to reveal the baby's gender!
The aquarium announced on Monday during a gender-reveal party that their youngest penguin is a
We're so glad she's feeling better!
A baby gorilla at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park was born on March 12th, and had a rough time of it for a few weeks.
The poor lil' one had to have surgery for a collapsed lung not too long after being born via emergency C-section delivery, and even had pneumonia at one point. During that whole excruciating experience, the female baby gorilla was under intense care at the veterinary clinic.
But the newborn gorilla has recovered nicely, and recently got to meet her mother Imani and other family member for the very first time!
Here's what senior keeper Matt Gelvin said:
The London Zoo has three of the cutest little residents you'll ever see.
Three Sumatran Tiger cubs, the world's rarest tigers, were born on February 3rd this year to momma cat Melati.
Now the tigress is inside a "cubbing den" with her babies, lounging around, nursing and kissing her babies.
One of the zookeepers said:
"We couldn't be more delighted with our new arrivals, and with how Melati is responding to her three cubs. We've been observing them 24/7, and one of us is always on duty to keep an eye on the little ones throughout the night. We've even been able to observe key milestones like their eyes opening and their tentative first steps."
The zookeepers still don't know if they're boy or girl tigers yet.
One is already nicknamed "Trouble" because they're always exploring their den and waking up their sleeping siblings!
So stupid cute!

This is so super stupid cute we can barely handle it.
The Taipei Zoo is the luckiest zoo in the world!
They have got the cutest, sweetest momma panda Yuan Yuan and she just loves her baby Yuan Zai to death.
She knows how to take care of her baby, like when it's the little fuzzball's bedtime!
She's a fussy little girl who refused to go to sleep when she was supposed to.
The little cub started running around their whole enclosure.
So mama Yuan Yuan had to chase her down and bring her right back to bed.
So super cute!
