It is hard to tell what the cutest animal in the world is. Most animals are funny and attractive when young. But these flying squirrels are cute at any age. They are mostly found in Japan, but also in a few European countries.
They belong to an old category of animals that have not really evolved overtime. They also do not hibernate. Instead, they might sleep for a few days in a row. These funky animals do not really fly, but they glide due to a membrane between their feet. They can glide over more than 100 meters when needed, whether they escape a predator or look for food.
