If you're wondering what the cutest place on earth looks like, then Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding is your answer. Inside this research establishment, is possibly the most adorable sight that you will ever behold: a baby panda daycare. Yes, you read that right. This center plays a huge role in the survival of endangered giant pandas that everyone loves so much! Situated in Chenghua District of Chengdu, Sichuan Province, China, the facility is actually a specialized breeding center and nursery that tries to breed new pandas in order to revitalize the dwindling population in the wild which is said to be as small as 1,864. 

The breeding center, which was founded in the 1980s after rescuing six malnourished pandas, every panda cub is precious and special. The VIP status is not only there because of how madly cute they are but also due to the fact that it is extremely difficult to get pandas to breed. According to National Geography, female pandas can only conceive for two or three days around ovulation which happens once a year. In addition, the fetus of a panda grows extremely slowly as they experience something called a "delayed implantation" where the fetus stops growing soon after the fertilization of the eggs and latches onto the uterine wall when it's the right time. Therefore, pandas can give birth to one baby every two years. 

Take a look at some of the most adorable pictures:
