Try Not To Go All Gooey Watching This Cute Baby Alligator Hatch

"Looks like a scene out of Jurassic Park!"

Who knew alligators could be so adorable?

A baby gator hatches from its egg in cute video filmed at The Australian Reptile Park on the New South Wales Central Coast on Thursday.

It pushes its snout through the cracked shell and slowly blinks, before taking its very first peak at the outside world.

Making a delightful "beeping" sound, it takes its time to acclimatize to its new surroundings. The goo-covered critter then slides out as the clip ends.

The park uploaded the video to Facebook on Friday, and it's going viral.

"Baby alligators hatching at The Australian Reptile Park yesterday! Looks like a scene out of Jurassic Park!!" it said in a caption below the video.

"Cutest sound in the world!" wrote one commenter, while another added, "very cute. Love the little noises."

Wildlife expert Tim Faulkner, who is the park's general manager, also shared the video on Facebook. Some of his fans likened the gator's hatching to the birth of Daenerys Targaryen's dragons in "Game of Thrones."
