Cutest baby animal in the world

A study by Explore Worldwide claimed that Indian Rhinoceros are the cutest baby animal in the world. As a part of the study, participant’s eye movements were keenly observed. They were given an option to choose from 80 different baby animals from around the world. The study tracked which species held the interest for the longest time, and also which baby animal did the participants return to. 

“We began by shortlisting 80 animal species indigenous to various countries around the world, showing participants images of these fluffy, scaly or feathery creatures in their infant form. By measuring the lingering time of a gaze and the number of fixations, we found the ultimate list of the world's most adorable baby animals,” stated the official website.
