And this duckling isn't the only one to follow his new family like his life depends on it. Turns out, ducklings are pretty good at following humans, like this energetic little fellow and this itty bitty new friend.

Clearly this little guy is so grateful to his new family for rescuing him that he never wants to be without them. After all, what if they need help eventually? He wants to be around to repay the favor.
