The unnamed newborn joined in on an adorable photo shoot in Hangzhou, China, according to Pix 11. During the session, the cub tried to strike some ferocious poses, but turned out looking more darling than dangerous. The rare black tiger was also joined by a dog, who allowed the wild animal to nurse from her when needed.

We've said it before and we'll say it again: We love our jobs.

But in order to keep them, we have to bring you things like this video of adorable puppies playing with toys in the PEOPLE studio.

The only reason we're still employed is because there is actually a reason for all this cuteness: Animal Planet's Emmy-nominated series, Too Cute, has somehow managed to get even cuter in its second season, with Too Cute! Pint-Sized, a 12-episode, half-hour series that begins Aug. 16 at 8 p.m. ET/PT (two back-to-back episodes air each week).

The Daily Treat: Meet the World's First Surviving Panda Triplets (You Won't be Disappointed!)

If there's one thing you remember from today, it should be this: there is nothing cuter than a set of panda triplets.

There is also nothing more rare. Born on July 29 at Guangzhou's Chimelong Safari Park in China, these 16-day-old siblings are the world's first surviving panda triplets, according to The Guardian.

The birth of the panda babies – who are being cared for by their mother Juxiao and a round-the-clock team of zoo nannies – is extra-special since the animals have such a low reproductive rate.

Parents, we all know Yuan Yuan's pain, don't we?

The giant panda thought she'd managed to get her cub, Yuan Zai, to bed – only to have her little one scramble away. And for a few precious minutes, Yuan Zai had her run of the enclosure at Taiwan's Taipei Zoo. (Start the above video at the 2:45 mark if you want to get straight to the action.)

But when Yuan Yuan realized where the 7-month-old cub had gotten to, she quickly came out and scooped her up by the fur. Try as Yuan Zai might, there was no convincing her mother to let her stay up late. In fact, Yuan Yuan kept a firm grasp on her baby girl until she fell back to sleep.
