A baby elephant wanting a cuddle ... I thought this was extremely cute!
That was hilarious. But then I started wondering about the natural behavior in elephants... He was moving around a lot. Was he trying to play?
Google "elephants cuddling". Hilarious how normal this is :-)
@ubergigglefritz Maybe he was playing! (Some of those elephants look kind of heavy for a person's lap ...)
How about cuddling a cow ... apparently there are some places in Holland and Switzerland where you can go and do that.
@respectful Aww that is so cute. Animals need cuddles too.
I am a dog groomer and everyone in my shop gets and gives doggy hugs and smooches! It's the best part of the job.
@salsaoma That's really awesome.
Reposting this video from another thread since it seems to fit in here:
@UKGuy It does fit! That guy cuddling the baby elephant keeps on turning up.
How about cuddling a lion ...
@UKGuy @respectful Aww those are great. Thank you for sharing them.
@respectful BIG MLEM!
Cats are cats, no matter the size.
@CeliaC "BIG MLEM" -- you taught me a new word! So I had to go and research it ... spot the shark cuddling:
I just watched the rest and a few more, and now there are tears streaming down my face. Actually, did anyone else notice that many of the people cuddling the animals look like they're about to cry?
@respectful You're welcome! Isn't it fantastic?
A few more cuddly sharks ...
"It's an adorable friendship and, if you look past her rows of razor-sharp teeth, this friendly shark is almost cute." I don't know why but that part really made me laugh out loud! Thanks for posting all these amazing videos!
Then there's otters ...
And not sure if this counts, but weasels:
Came across this animated GIF and thought it was adorable. An owl enjoying a head massage. You might have to click on it to see it animate.
Another owl one I like (slightly sad though) ... a rescued Horned Owl called Gigi missed this guy when he was away, and gave him a hug when he returned:
Thank god for this thread- it is seriously too cute ? My kitties will jump up and join the cuddle sesh sometimes and my clients seem to love it, it adds to the warmth and comfort in my opinion
Dragons are a type of animal, yes?
@respectful I love that elephant cuddle so much! LOL Wow! Thanks. Great thread! Thanks for the videos everyone.

Been meaning to post some of my favourite images of monkeys cuddling cats...I mean, we're closely related, right? Look at the emotion on that second guy's face.
@catloaf I guess monkeys are people too. I wonder if the tiger and chimp remained friends as they got older?
Baby goats wanting a hug (gif on reddit).
I love those baby elephants. I want to be the one getting his head scratched. I think I’m actually channeling the smell of elephants right now. Lol weird. There are no elephants present in my office. I checked!
This cat knows the importance of a cuddle, even when you've got the weather to report:
