The Cincinnati Zoo has been documenting the life of now 13-year-old aardvark Ali for years. And each post, including this one from 2015, has captured a more captive audience.

In it, you could see the 5-day-old’s little tummy moving softly up and down, which is already too adorable to look away from. But when he sneezes, it doesn’t even break his stride. He little body just shivers a bit and continues napping. Too cute!


There were plenty of “ooohs” and “awwws” from the zoo’s hundreds of thousands of followers on social media. One user wrote, “That is a pretty special baby for sure! So sweet!”
