Young boy excited to meet a beaver at Oregon Zoo

(CBS News) Kids and animals separately can make for some very cute viral videos. And when they come together, the adorable overload ante is upped all the more. So go ahead and watch what happens when a little boy named Ryan encounters a beaver at the Oregon Zoo above.

Awwww... the very cute, caught-on-tape moment was posted by YouTube user Luyen Dao and shows Ryan and the beaver appearing to be very happy to meet each other. I'd like to hope this is just the first of many encounters to come and the start of a beautiful friendship between these two.
