17 Animal Friends Who Can’t Forget Their First Time Getting Weighed By Caregivers

Weighing animals is extremely important because it lets us check whether they are healthy or not. The data of size and weight collected after weighing them allows caretakers to determine the correct amount of food and water, and medicine that an animal can get. This will help caregivers provide animals the right diet, care and medication to ensure they are happy and healthy.

However, it’s not always easy to weigh animals, especially when they are wild animals. For this reason, zookeepers and animal care workers come up with different ways to help them weigh their animals, and some of them are really special and adorable.

Here are 17 photos that show how animal caregivers weigh their fosterlings. Scroll down to enjoy! We are sure that these cute pics will make you smile or make your day a little brighter!
