Gr8at – Cute Animal Photos

After a slightly painful trip to the dentist today, I needed some adorable photos of animals to cheer me up. Here are my eight favourites from internet photos I’ve been sent from emails over the years. Which ones stand out the most to you?

Pink birdsToo cute for words. Makes you wonder what they are thinking.

Turtle

kitty-and-lion

Just what is he whispering…?

Penguins

That pose definitely gets my seal of approval.

Elephant

Makes you wonder what shampoo is being used.

Polar Bear

Hope someone has a towel nearby.

Rabbit

If the animal kingdom ever remakes Rocky…

Koalas

Not the most energetic of animals, but with poses like that they sure know how to work the camera.
