Down Syndrome is a genetic disorder that was identified in the year 1862. The people suffering from down syndrome often have both physical and intellectual disabilities that expose them to other health troubles such as weak immune system, epilepsy, leukaemia and many other risks.

You'd be shocked to know that this disorder isn't limited to just humans, many animal species also have to cope with it. But that doesn't mean that they're not adorable just the same.

These are a few pictures of animals that have down syndrome that would totally put you in awe of their beauty and cuteness.
