Omg, we can’t get enough of them.

It’s always delightful when little baby animals are born in Dublin Zoo and the latest additions are nothing short of adorable.

Dublin Zoo announced the news this afternoon, taking to Instagram to show off a picture of the cubs, as well as a few videos which were uploaded to Instagram Stories.

The zoo said: “The two female cubs (yet to be named) weighed approximately 1.5kg each when they were born on October 14th and have grown rapidly to 15kg each.⁣”
