    Baby Wildebeest Meets Baby Hyena | Destination WILD

    NARRATOR: Another week, another milestone. Neo is old enough to join the other calves in the creche, a nursery which loosely forms in the center of the herd. Mom’s grateful for the extra freedom. Relieved of babysitting duty, she grazes a little distance away. But no one notices when Neo bounces right out of the circle on his own mission. The other youngsters play together in the creche, unaware of Neo’s absence. Neo doesn’t recognize those strange looking ears. Short grass hides a lot if you’re not tall. The hyena junior is a baby himself, equally curious about the strange smell and shape coming closer. They have no knowledge of…

    Why Are Babies So Cute?

    There’s no denying that human babies are cute – but even other species tend to have adorable infants. So why has science conditioned us to find babies so precious? Is there something specific that triggers our urge to hold and squeeze them? Interestingly, studies have found that macaque monkeys pay little attention to newborn faces, leading researchers to believe that the ‘cute feeling’ may be an entirely human trait. Unlike many other species, once born, human babies are completely dependent on their parents for survival. As a result, humans have adapted to find certain traits aesthetically pleasing and downright adorable, in effort to increase interaction, care and protection from parents.…

    5 Ways to Comfort a Kitten

    [♪ gentle music ♪] Hi, everybody. When caring for kittens, you want to give them the most comfortable experience possible, so these are my top five tips for keeping kittens warm and cozy. The first thing I recommend is a microwavable heating pad, like a Snuggle Safe. You just pop it in the microwave for about five minutes, and it’ll stay warm for several hours. This makes it really easy for you to transport the kittens with it. You’re not relying on a heating pad with a cord. So just make sure when you take it out that you feel it to make sure it’s warm, but not too, too…
