The World’s Cutest Animals

It is amazing the diversity in the beauty that we have in this world. Great and beautiful are the natural sceneries scattered in different countries across the globe and millions of people hope from one country to another just to experience the beauty found in the lands yonder. But while we talk about beautiful landscapes and natural sceneries, it is also befitting to talk about animals since we don’t live in this world alone. There are thousands of animal species, some living in the wild while some sharing with us the same spaces we have at home. Though you will lose count if you start to determine the total number of animals available in this planet, here is a look at some of the world’s cutest animals:

 

 

Sloth

Sloth is a relaxed and highly lovable animal. The commonplace and the natural habitat where you will find this cute animal is in the jungles and the rainforests of South America. Though the name may suggest laziness to some people, sloth is not necessarily a lazy animal, but it will always take its time wherever it goes. Since they move slowly from one place to another, they never attract the attention of predators and their very nature gives them a nice defense mechanism.

 

 

Pigmy hippopotamus

The pygmy hippo is one animal that will rarely miss from the list of the cutest animals in the world. Though hippos are naturally very huge and big animals, they are very pretty when they are smalls and were it not for the fact that they are wild animals, millions would die to have them as pets at home. But with the pygmy hippo, they are very cute and harmless and currently, they are one of the animals marked for extinction in the coming few years.

 

 

Slow Loris

Slow Loris features big, brown eyes with a round head and small pointy ears and it is one of the cute baby animals you will ever encounter in your life. It is an exotic animal, native to South and Southeast Asia, and though it has very adorable looks, it is a very dangerous animal. It has a gland on the elbows which excretes very dangerous venom and getting close to it is highly discouraged as just with a snap of the seemingly feeble fingers, you could be left wreathing in pain and in need of emergency medical care.

 

 

Meerkat

From afar, you may mistake the meerkat for a mongoose, but it has a characteristic human-like pose and this is what has made them extremely popular. They are cute and highly agile animals and they are native to the deserts of South Africa. The meerkats are social animals and will always live and walk in gangs of about 20 animals each, though it is also common to find them in groups of up to 50 members.

 

 

Penguin

There is no denying that penguins are some of the cute animals you will ever find in the world, especially when you are considering sea mammals.

Penguins are highly agile, and though they can’t fly, they are very good at running and swimming.

 

 

Red Panda

Also known as the red cat-bear, the red panda is another animal that will seldom miss in the list of cute animals in the world.
