We love puppies. And kittens. And micro-pigs. After all, it’s a universal rule that the baby version of any adorable adult is always cuter – or is it?
In a photo taken at Prague’s Zoo Praha, bird curator Antonin Vaidl gingerly feeds a 3-day-old Edward’s Fig parrot with a spoon.
While we admit it’s pretty precious to see the bird peck ever so slightly at the tip of the spoon, its feather-less appearance is ruffling our own feathers, especially considering what the species looks like as an adult. Parrot babies are rarely seen, says zoo representative Michal Stastny, but we have to ask: Is that a good thing?
Tell us: Did you squee or squirm when you saw this photo?
