Zoo Zurich is home to many animals, but one in particular has sent our cuteness meter into the red.
A female Bactrian Camel named Nara was born at Zoo Zurich in Switzerland.
The little cutie is so adorbz, struggling to walk (just like Bambi on the ice) because her legs are so long!

In frigid Siberia, the Russians have been performing an experiment in evolution.
They wanted to find out how wolves turned into dogs, so they started breeding foxes.
They selected the calmest, most docile foxes and bred them for years and years.
What happened?? The foxes became tame! So tame that they can actually be sold as exotic pets now!!
Each fox goes for about $8,000 and wealthy Americans looking for an interesting pet are scooping them up.
The foxes aren't wild animals, they're sweethearts!!
Check out the video (above) to see some domesticated foxes!

WOW WOW WOW!!!! Our childhood dreams are coming true!
Roxy is a rescued fox who is getting along famously with her new bestie, Buster.
And Buster is a dog!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The fox was rescued 13 years ago by the Warwickshire Wildlife Sanctuary in Nuneaton, UK. And for the 13 years, she's been walking alongside many dogs and enjoying her new home!
Roxy had displayed canine characteristics and had some human interaction when she was rescued so she couldn't be released back in the wild.
So she became a pet and even though there are six foxes at the rescue, Roxy PREFERS playing with dogs!
Werk it, gurl! Be your own foxy woman!!!!

We've heard of cats being domesticated, but this is ridiculous!
This kitten leaves the claws retracted and opts for the silverware instead!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see Nylah eat her Kitty Chow with a fork!
We're pretty sure feline evolution just took a huge leap forward. Let's just hope it lands on its feet!

We are so proud this didn't happen in America! LOLZ!!
A fatass fish who's silly owner raised on it Kit-Kats is being forced to give them a break after getting too big for his tank.
The fatso fish is named Gary, and he's a 15.7-inch, 8.8-pound gourami, an exotic Asian freshwater fish that is considered a delicacy in Indonesia.
Gary was in the care of a private owner until he was donated to the SeaLife Aquarium in London after becoming too large, a common fate for many domesticated fish, according to center spokeswoman Rebecca Carter.
Aquarium employees tried to give Gary a taste of normal gourami food by stuffing Kit-Kat crumbles into grapes before shutting this chocoholic fish off cold turkey.
He's not eating sweets anymore, but he is getting a taste of fame. The aquarium is now featuring Gary in an exhibit called "Tank Busters" that showcases a number of large (fatasses) fish that simply grew too big for their owners to manage.

We've been bfs for ages… literally.
Researchers have discovered that the French were domesticating dogs in prehistoric times (about 15,000 years ago), far earlier than previously thought.
They would use poodle-like animals as hunting partners and to keep them warm when they sheltered in caves.
The researchers said that the dogs would have been below about 17inches in height, the same size as today’s poodles, beagles and cockers.
They said the animal could have been domesticated from small wolves, although diet and climate could have accounted for their small size.
But the relationship wasn’t always so healthy for man’s best friend - the French ate them too and used their fur for clothing.
So yeah…. not quite the same.
