Please Nominate The Jerboa for “Cutest Animal on the Planet” — It’s the Clear Champion!
The long-eared jerboa, though it may look like a mouse, has many distinct qualities. Its enormous ears most notably set this species apart from its rodent cousins, but it also has a long, tufted tail and hops around on its hind legs. There is still much to be learned about these cute critters, but we may never get the chance if their population continues to decline.
