Hiroshi Nittono, a researcher at Hiroshima University, has published the results of an experiment on—wait for it—CUTENESS. The results stated that looking at cute animal pictures, from pandas to puppies, at work can actually increase your productivity.


That’s enough of an excuse… I mean, reason, for me. Without further ado, here are ten cute animal GIFs to make you smile.​



  1. This bun-bun makes carrots look DEE-LICIOUS.
  2. Going to class like:
  3. You howl you little baby werewolves! HOWL!
  4. Tiny turtle. BIIIG berry. PRECIOUS.
  5. Echo-lo-what? Alternatively, FEAR ME I’M A CREATURE OF THE NIGHT!
  6. What you looking at?
  7. You can’t SEE ME!
  8. They see me roooollliiiiiin’
  9. I’ve always wanted to be a dancer.
  10. Take this precious panda’s ball, I will find you.



I hope your mood lifted at least 0.0001% after getting through this list. Have an adorable day, everybody!
