Mom, can we keep her?!

This extremely rare female red panda, who happens to look like baby Rocket from Guardians of the Galaxy, was just introduced by the Nashville Zoo. And she is almost too adorable for human eyes.

She knows it too.

Aw, inside that little bucket? SERIOUSLY STOP.

The panda cub, born July 3, is actually something of a miracle: Red pandas are considered vulnerable to extinction and have very high infant mortality rates, so the zoo had to be very careful in caring for this baby panda/ cutest organism past, present, and future.

Luckily, so far things look good for the panda and her mama. The zoo plans to debut the baby panda cub and even have a naming contest (like maybe Rocket from Guardians of the Galaxy!) in the fall.

But for real, can we please keep her? Give us that panda.
