Social media mostly had humans grabbing the spotlight, but it seems like animals are competing to stay ahead in the race too! The video of a cute little hippopotamus floating has proven that animals can be pretty great at grabbing the spotlight as well.

There is a whole separate and often under-appreciated type of social content among the sea of stress-inducing posts on social media, and that is none other than photographs and videos of cute animals! Such content is sometimes perceived as lacking depth or as a time-waster because it is lighthearted, heartwarming, and even comical at times—but you might want to hold back on that, because there may be more to it.
