Ah! Omg! This is the cutest thing ever!!!
Lily is an adorbz lil baby elephant who just celebrated her first birthday back on November 30th.
The little cutie is living at the Oregon Zoo with her mama and papa and she's so super cute!
Some amazing person took all the footage from Lily's young life and put it together to make a video about her first year of life!!
Watch as she goes from tiny (not too tiny) newborn to growing toddler elephant.
We wish we could've been there to see her when she was just a lil baybay but at least we can relive it in this super cut!
Check out the video (above) to see Lily's first year of life at the zoo.
At Schönbrunn Zoo in Austria, a pair of Capybaras (the world's largest rodent species) knocked some furry boots!
After six months hanging out inside their momma's belly, a healthy litter of three capybara pups was born on November 29th.
Congrats on the cutie pups!!
The little babies are so ridiculously cute we can barely even handle it.
Seriously, don't stare at that pic too long or else you might lose your mind!
Even though these little babes are only a few days old, they're not only able to follow their momma around their enclosure… they're able to swim!!
That's right, with help from their webbed toes, the pups have already taken a dip in their pool. So ahmayzing!
These guys are basically giant guinea pigs and that sounds like the best thing ever.
Dog sized guinea pigs?? Sign us up!!

Switzerland's Zoo Basel is the proud owner of one of the cutest critters we've ever seen.
That critter is called a Geoffroy's Spider Monkey and he is so stankin' cute we don't know what to do.
This little baby was born on October 20th to mother Juanita.
They don't know his gender yet but what they do know is he's
Ah! Omg! This is so stinkin' cute!!
As if meerkats needed to be any cuter…
A meerkat at London Zoo got into the holiday spirit with a Christmas stocking!
The zoo has a magical Meet Santa experience and before the jolly man clad in red comes flying in on his sleigh, the animals all get gifts.
So all the meerkats got stockings with treats inside!
It's perfect because it's enrichment for them, because they're being stimulated and challenged by these foreign objects.
It's also double perfect because while they're being enriched, we get to watch them and go awwwwww!
Merry Christmas you cutie meerkats!

A tiger trainer at the Australia Zoo had to be flown to the hospital after an awful attack!
David Styles, 30, suffered two puncture wounds to his neck when a tiger attacked him in front of about 50 zoo visitors!
A witness to the awful attack said:
"It was horrifying. They fell in the water and the tiger was trying to hold him under. The other trainers, maybe four of them, tried to fight the tiger off. One of them was hitting it with a stick. It was an accident. It was not an act of aggression. It was part of a routine and just an unfortunate mistake."
That's terrible! No one knows what caused the attack but it's thought to be the worst in the zoo's history!!
Check out a video to see the moment the tiger attacks the trainer AFTER THE JUMP!!
Oregon Zoo has a super cute North American River Otter named Tilly, who just had some babies!
She had a pup earlier this year and now she's just had another baby earlier this month.
This lion, you guys, this lion. We can't… we just can't…
We're suffering a serious cuteness overload and we don't care!
A lion cub named Karis lives at Blair Drummond Safari Park near Stirling, central Scotland and we're about to buy a plane ticket there just for this little cubster.
She was given the ahmayzing opportunity to play in a pile of fallen fall leaves and good gravy the result was incrediballs!
She jumped around in the pile, attacking the leaves with 1/16 the ferocity of a lion (seeing as how she's all super small and cute).
The faces this little cub make are impossicute and we can barely handle it.
Now if you'll excuse us, we have to get back to staring at this photo. That FACE!! AHHHH!
