If you're looking for a nature show to wile away the lockdown days in front of, then look no further than Sky's new offering, Wild Animals Babies.
The original series follows biologist Patrick Aryee as he teaches us about an adorable cast of baby animals in the wild, and we watch the face their ultimate test: surviving the first days, weeks and months on earth.
We can expect camera footage to take us everywhere from Australia to the Costa Rican coast, where we will see baby animals tackling life's biggest hurdles.
And animals from elephants to wildebeests to kangaroos to lions will crop up along the way, each with their own challenges and social hierarchies to adjust to.
Learning the essential skills they need to make it in the big, wide, world, the animals are also given a helping hand from their devoted parents along the way.
But, get the tissues ready, because not all of them will make it unscathed.
The new series comprises of three episodes: one looking at single infants, one at brother and sister relationships and one at the animals outnumbered by their numerous other siblings.
But if the prospect of watching baby animals toddle around on screen doesn't win you over (why wouldn't it?!) we've got something else that will.
For those of you who aren't aware, film-maker Patrick Aryee has previously worked on multiple David Attenborough shows, from BBC's Frozen Planet to Attenborough: 60 Years In The Wild.
So, basically, you *know* this is going to be good.
He's also made a whole load of other popular TV shows, including Dogs: An Amazing Animal and Cats: An Amazing Animal and Monkeys: An Amazing Animal, as well as Big Beasts: Last Of The Giants, and more.
Sold yet? They had us at baby elephants, tbh.
Wild Animals Babies lands on the new Sky Nature channel and NOWTV on May 31st.
