Cuddling with our pets is the best, and our pets usually love it right back - even the ones you wouldn't expect to.
This is Ripley the toucan.
Ripley has lived with her mom and dad since she was a baby, and loves them very much.
She's a VERY active little gal and loves to fly and play around ...
... but her very favorite activity is being held by her mom and dad like a baby.
Ripley absolutely loves to be held, and looks just like a little human baby in her mom's arms.
You might not think that a bird would want to snuggle, but Ripley is all about it.
Of course she's a very fun, quirky bird and loves to participate in mom and dad's other passions too ...
... but at the end of the day, a bunch of cuddles is really all she needs.
