Baby sun bears are born blind, hairless, and helpless, and are completely dependent on their mothers for their first three months.  Their mothers will carry them in their mouths or, unusually, by cradling them in their arms while they walk on their hind legs, a behaviour seen in no other bear species.  The cubs nurse from their mother for around 18 months, and will stay with her until they are two years old.  Females are ready to find a mate of their own by the time they are three, and males reach sexual maturity at around four.

Baby panda wants mail.

also why are human babies.. Like That.. i mean i know plenty of other mammal babies will cry out in distress when separated from their mothers and such but human babies pretty much shriek their lungs out whenever they feel any discomfort? like….wouldnt that be a pretty big liability for early humans that were more vulnerable to being preyed on? or what

Baby Skunk Trio by Bill McMullen
Via Flickr:
While photographing a Great Horned Owl family, fellow photographer Gary Fairhead (www.redbubble.com/people/garyfairhead) and myself came across these adorable baby skunks along the edge of a walking trail. We backed up, waited and sure enough they walked onto the trail, played and then disappeared into the long grass. Gotta love the unexpected! Petrie Island, Ottawa, Ontario. Photographed with a Canon 7D, 400mm f5.6L and tripod.
