On Tuesday afternoon, the Como Park and Minnesota Zoos exchanged some of the cutest animal pictures over Twitter, all for a good cause. Nonprofit partners Como Friends and Minnesota Zoo Foundation came together in an effort to not only win our hearts, but also our donations for "Give to the Max Day" on Thursday. In this "cute-off," both organizations shared adorable photos to highlight their daily efforts to save local wildlife and animals from all around the world.

Here are some of the sweetest snaps:

1: Honestly, no, nothing could be cuter.

2: Their smiles!

3: Her. Name. Is. Chloe.

4: Cleo needs to meet Chloe! #CutenessOverload

5: Three peas in a pod!
