The 2021 Baby Animal Bracket is off to a dramatic start this year as the Air, Land, Sea and Wildcard divisions all saw some incredible upsets by some of the sport's most valuable teams.
The #8 seeded Baby Duckling did not disappoint their fans as it easily beat the Baby Sea turtle to advance to Round 2. Newcomer Baby Frogmouth Chick didn't even blink in the face of its tough opponent - the Baby Hawk, who fell to the Frogmouth Chick in exciting double-overtime action.
Unfortunately, there will be no Cinderella story for the Baby Bittern this year as the rookie team was soundly beaten by the Baby Hummingbird in Round 1. However, the Baby Hummingbird's odds of advancing to the next round are low as it goes up against the Baby Gosling, who has proven again and again that it knows this sport better than anyone else.
This year, the Baby Elephant had a round he'll never forget, taking in nearly 89% of the vote! But he'll have to prove the first round wasn't a fluke as they face a formidable opponent in the Baby Pig in Round 2.
Finally, the Baby Penguin cruised to an easy Round 2 berth with its adorable photos. Heartbreak may still away out feathered friend, as the Baby Penguin has advanced to Round 2 several times before, only to falter when the pressure is on.
