In our rough and tough world we need a shot of cuteness from time to time. Well, then, consider yourself "shot".
We featured some of the cutest animals in our previous posts (see our extensive "Animals" category). What can we say? It's time for another update!

This is a Golden Brushtail Possum
This Trichosurus vulpecula Golden Brushtail Possum baby is called Bailey (his cream-colored fur reminds us of a certain Irish liquor) - these animals are rarely seen the wild, being a nocturnal marsupials mostly found in Tasmania:

This is a Solenodon
Sole... what? (the name means "Slotted Tooth"). This is a pretty rare nocturnal animal, which digs holes, eats insects and is venomous. It is interesting because it still retains unique characteristics of primitive mammals, which lived during prehistoric times - more info.
The Japanese dwarf flying squirrel is just as rare, and impossibly cute (check out these hazy, large eyes). Another very cute shot of resting squirrels is here.
This is a sloth; just one extremely grateful sloth. It was rescued in Costa Rica:

A newborn Mongoose Lemur looks into the camera (right image)... Mongoose lemurs are very rare; their only protected habitat is the Ankarafantsika Reserve - they are the size of a small house cat and can be both diurnal and nocturnal (depending on the season):

Here is a baby fennec fox (left), and a grown animal (on the right): these guys are sometimes called "little monsters", as they are very high maintenance and do not make good pets, no matter how cute they might look -

Here is an African Pigmy Hedgehog with "flower power":
Here is a spineless hedgehog in a yellow jumper - and another story about a hedgehog with no bristles ("Betty the hedgehog, who was abandoned by her family because she does not have any spikes"):
(images via 1, )
"Staff at St. Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital in Buckinghamshire have made a little jumper to keep a spineless hedgehog warm. The animal was found by a member of the public in a garden in Bedford and has been named Spudlina by staff as her skin resembles that of a potato."
And then, there is this baby chameleon:
Interesting fact: "there are several species of pygmy leaf chameleons from Madagascar that are this size when fully grown."
