Your moment of cute: baby nautilus edition

There are six species of nautiloid currently alive today, and the Birth Aquarium at Scripps Institute of Oceanography at University of California - San Diego has recently hatched a specimen of the chambered nautilus, Nautilus pompilius. This adorable cephalopod was developing in its egg for nine months before it hatched out on the 14th of this month.
