Many animals joined their human counterparts in finding ways to beat the heat this week. From rhinos and lions to polar bears and black-footed penguins, it was a fight to escape the high temperatures.

Despite the heat, adorable images were captured of a baby Pygmy hippopotamus, a Caribbean Flamingo chick, and two baby snow leopards in Poland.

A wide-eyed baby slender loris visiting the vet, and a cat hugging a bearded dragon, might have been the adorable animal moments of the week.

What do you think is the cutest moment caught on camera?
