There are few things cuter than a baby gray whale swimming by to say hello

Here's your daily moment of cetacean bliss. In the gray whale breeding grounds of Mexico's San Ignacio Lagoon, humans are not permitted to approach gray whales, but these 50-foot-long oceanic beasts will go out of their way to observe humans. Explains One World Ocean, "Whale watching here is highly regulated [...] rather than closely approaching the whales, they must idle their engine and wait for the whales to approach the vessel, which is a common occurrence."

In this amazing clip, a mother gray whale lifts her calf up to investigate the humans, who promptly go bonkers. And should this video pique your interest, here's some more fun with cetacean lifting.
