Your morning adorable: Wolf pups play at Berlin Zoo
Germany's Berlin Zoo stubbornly persists in maintaining what we believe to be the world's most adorable collection of baby animals.
As the most recent example in a large body of evidence, we humbly present the wolf pups above, born in late April at the zoo and now of prime rough-and-tumble playing age. (Previous evidence that Berlin is the world's cute-baby-animal capital include two knock-kneed moose calves, a batch of jaguar cubs in a basket, a litter of alarmingly cute caracal kittens and two adorable rhinoceros calves representing two distinct species. Of course, perhaps the biggest cute superstar born in Berlin is Knut, the polar bear cub who took the animal-loving world by storm a few years back. Although Knut is no longer the adorable cub he once was, in our hearts he remains an icon of cute.)
We're, quite frankly, alarmed by just how precious these wolf pups are. But it gets even sweeter; after the jump, check out a photo of one of the cubs enjoying some time out with one of its parents.
