I hear a spoonful of lemming helps the ivermectin go down. In a most delightful way.

The fact that baby animals look "cute" is a survival mechanism. Makes it less likely they'll be killed before they have a chance to breed.

I think I read somewhere that human babies tend to resemble their fathers more during infancy. Some sort of genetic coding back from when you couldn't 100% guarantee paternity so fathers would be more likely to accept the child as theirs and protect/provide for it.

What predators care if it looks cute or not?

Even the baby warthog is cute. The baby hedgehogs, not so much.

It's so their parents don't eat them.

You think animals think things are "cute" like we do?

I think that certain visual cues like them big ol' sweetie eyes looking back at you can trigger a protective instinct.

Actually, I have.  A doe made a poor decision that under my deck would be a safe spot to drop her litter.  My lab went all Lenny with them* and brought them one by one into the house.  My wife called me crying and hysterically crying about what to do with them because the dog took the all over the place (4 of them he accidentally killed).  My wife is a big softy and we've had pet rabbits in the past.

/*He was trying to be gentle but they were brand-new, extremely fragile bunnies and he's a clumsy goofball.
