Baby elephants. They're the best, aren't they?

These animals play soccer... they joyfully play with ribbons... and they totally cause us to collectively melt when they learn how to blow bubbles with their trunk.

Case in point: this two-week old calf at the Reid Park Zoo in Tuscon, Arizona. 

Most young elephant suck their trunk just like human babies suck their thumb, often taking at least six months until they can use this body part to eat and drink.

So this kid is way ahead of the game! And way adorable as well!

On the flip side, nothing is sadder than a baby elephant crying. Nothing.

Human beings could learn a lot from the animal kingdom. 

Specifically, we could learn how to make the most out of a seemingly sad situation, taking a lesson from this two-legged dog, who is hopping around without a care in the world.

Or from Peekaboo, an Egyptian fruit bat who has been living at Bat World in Texas since 2009 when she and her mom were rescued from difficult conditions at a roadside zoo.

They often went a long time with no food, water or stimulation.

One Happy Bat

But the USDA then got involved and Bat World "happily offered to take them," says Bat World Sanctuary founder Amanda Lollar.

Ready for a return to Japan’s Rabbit Island?

In February, we posted a video of this amazing locale, which was once used to manufacture mustard gas and which now is home to the most impressive collection of bunnies in the world.

Every now and then a human being strolls these shores, however, offering up food to the furry locals and getting embraced in a flurry of snuggles.

Have you ever been more jealous of anyone in your entire life?!?

Remember the cheetah and the dog who chased each other around and acted as total best friends late last year?

Or the baby cheetah and baby who formed a tight bond this summer at the San Diego Zoo this summer?

Well, the latter pair is back in the news... for the most adorable of reasons!

Raina, a female Rhodesian ridgeback, recently traveled with her best pal Ruuxa, a male cheetah cub, while the latter had surgery at to fix her bowed legs.

The dog remained by the cheetah’s side throughout the procedure, onlookers confirm, also hanging closely around when the cub awoke from sedation.

San Diego Zoo Safari Park officials say the two have been best friends since they were paired together at four and five weeks old.

Duck Tales, a cartoon staple of Disney Channel's late '80s and early '90s TV lineup, is something many thirty-somethings out there will look back on fondly.

But get ready to up the ante on your nostalgia.

Now, thanks to the Internet - specifically the awesome blog Oh My Disney - has reenacted the theme song and intro with actual ducks! Check it out below!

One of the most memorable (and adored) parts of the show starring Scrooge McDuck and his nephews Huey, Louie and Dewey was the amazing theme.

Traveling to outer space, the deep sea, the pyramids and of course literally swimming in money in Scrooge's vault, the gang covered a lot of ground.

These real ducks did their best to do the same, although their animated counterparts are likely more receptive to hats and being buried alive in gold.

Enjoy having these cute images in your head this morning, and the Duck Tales theme song playing on repeat in your brain for probably the next 72 hours.

The cockatoo in the following video is giving brand new meaning to the term "bird feeder."

(Sorry, we shouldn't use those words around this Vaseline-soaked squirrel. He's probably still a tad bitter. And sticky.)

According to the description on YouTube, this bird’s name is Spike and he’s happily doing his Great Dane friends a major solid by tossing numerous treats their way.

The dogs can barely eat as many Milk Bones as Spike is throwing from the kitchen counter, but we doubt they mind.

We just wonder if they'll be able to return the favor later on and somehow provide Spike with some seed...

We know they're good for driving dogs crazy.

But who would have guessed that squirrels were also good for so many laughs?

First, there was this epic squirrel photobomb. Then, there was that time a squirrel dropped his nut from a role and reacted in hilarious fashion.

And now we present a video in which Robert and Nacy Krampf come up with a solution to prevent a squirrel in their backyard from stealing grub out of their bird feeder: Vaseline!

Nancy placed (non-toxic) lip balm on the pole that leads to the feeder and it worked both perfectly and hilariously.

Watch now as this persistent squirrel gets thwarted in his effort to steal some food... again and again and again and again....

Remember Faa Mai, the baby elephant who was rescued last year, who resides at the Elephant Nature Park in Thailand and who enjoys being sung to sleep?

Well... he's back! And cuter than ever!

The following video depicts little (by elephant standards) Faa Mai having the absolute time of his life, twirling a ribbon around with his trunk and even falling on his side at one point to play.

Watch now, but consider yourself warned: this footage contains extreme images of adorableness. Viewer discretion is advised.

It's hard to know which is more fun for baby elephants, twirling a ribbon or playing with a soccer ball.

It's been well documented by now that deer and dogs get along surprisingly well.

Have you seen this video of the former playing hide and seek with a Pit Bull? It's totes adorbs.

But the relationship between deer and cats is a bit more ambiguous. As illustrated in the following video, neither side really knows what to do with the other when they meet on the street.

At one point, the cat runs and hides under a car. When he emerges, however, the deer get totally freaked out by this strange creature.

It's pretty darn cute all around.

Word of advice to cats who went to get in well with deer: Just rub their stomach. You'll be best friends for life.

Elephants may be large and seemingly very slow.

But they are surprisingly spry!

We've seen elephants play soccer. We've seen them attack Kim Kardashian when the former sex tape star tried snapping a selfie.

And now we're witnessing an elephant from the African Lion Safari Zoo in Cambridge, Ontario slam dunk a basketball. For real!

His name is Chuck. But let's all agree to call him LeBron, shall we?

Anxious to see more elephants in viral actions?
