Oooh and aah at this pink flamingo chick’s first steps8/28/2012
Pink flamingos are pure kitsch when they’re staked in a Florida lawn, but not when they’re tucked under their mother’s wing like this chick at the Bronx Zoo. Check out this baby attempting its first steps on stalk-like legs and looking absolutely other-worldly. It’s moments like this that make even the snarkiest among us sigh and admire the wonders of nature. This tiny chick with the cute, fuzzy tush just wants to snuggle up and take a break, but mom’s not having any of it, nudging him into action until he falls over with exhaustion. Having earned a rest, she finally cocoons him in her feathery plumage – and out of the spotlight and the zoo paparazzi.
What's the cutest baby animal you've seen?
