There is a void in all of us that can only be filled by looking at cute things: Puppies, lolcats, stuffed animals, those adorably small bottles of liquor in the hotel minibar. The size of the void varies per person, and can be somewhat like an itch you didn’t know you needed scratching—until someone posts a video of a baby owl on Facebook and you watch it because it’s better than spending another 90 seconds looking at that spreadsheet, and no one will probably notice.

It is a scientific fact that at least 99.5 percent of human babies are cute, as are puppies and kittens. But in the wild, things are a little different. Baby animals are not necessarily by default “cute”—especially if they are just smaller versions of adults of the same species. Take Gila monsters, for instance. Everyone can resist taking a baby Gila monster home, unlike shelter dogs and cats. But, there are a few animals that are so excessively adorable, you’ll find yourself contemplating if it might be possible to actually keep one at your house for a while. You know, like a baby panda. Just for a little bit.

Here’s our list, in totally subjective order of preference.
