We’re not sure what it is, exactly, that we find so alarmingly cute about baby skunks.

After all, we know they’re going to grow up to be animals we’d prefer would stay a safe distance from us.


But a baby skunk is just downright adorable, in our opinion -- whether it’s performing a strange dance on its front feet or nursing alongside a litter of kittens.

This little skunk (skunkling?), above, and its nine brothers and sisters were born at the Tierpark Friedrichsfelde zoo in Berlin on May 4. They made their debut to the public June 15 -- and they looked pretty darn cute doing it.
