Have you ever dreamt of seeing the Cutest Animals around the world? We have compiled a list of some of the animals we think are the cutest. Read on to find out more about these animals and if you can see them in the wildlife.


Fennec Fox

The fennec fox is a small nocturnal fox native to the Sahara Desert and the Sinai Peninsula. Its most distinctive feature is its unusually large ears, which serve to dissipate heat. The fennec is the smallest dog family species. Fennec foxes dwell in the sandy Sahara and elsewhere in North Africa. Their nocturnal habits help them deal with the searing heat of the desert environment, and some physical adaptations help as well.


The margay is a small wild cat native to Central and South America. A solitary and nocturnal cat, it lives mainly in primary evergreen and deciduous forest. Margay prefers life in rainforests, deciduous and evergreen forests, but it can be also spotted near the coffee and cocoa plantations.

Populations are declining as their forest ranges are reduced by human conversion to agriculture, pasture and infrastructure development. Margays like to live in thick forests, where there are plenty of trees for them to climb. They do not like to live in open spaces at all, and have been found not only in Central America, but also in Mexico and Northern South America.


The Numbat, or known as the banded anteater (due to its appearance), is a small endangered marsupial animal native to Australia. Numbats are special because they have long sticky tongues that allows them pick up termites, which make up their exclusive diet. Unfortunately Numbats are endangered due to many factors, of which the most concerning is Habitat destruction. As a result there are fewer than 1,000 Numbats left in the wild.


Japanese Weasel

Japanese weasels are small carnivorous mammals native to Japan. Their fur is orange-brown with darker markings on the head. The fur on the throat is usually white in color. Females in this species are smaller than males. Japanese weasels are native to Japan where they occur on the islands of Honshū, Kyūshū, and Shikoku. They typically live in mountainous or forested areas near water. They tend to be located in grasslands, villages, and suburbs, but try to avoid big cities.

Red Panda

The red panda is a carnivore native to the eastern Himalayas and southwestern China. Red Pandas were given the name ‘panda‘ first; roughly fifty years before the black and white variety. hese pandas typically grow to the size of a house cat. Red pandas are present in some protected areas throughout their range, including parks in Myanmar, Bhutan, India, Nepal and China.


The meerkat or suricate is a small mongoose found in southern Africa. It is characterised by a broad head, large eyes, a pointed snout, long legs, a thin tapering tail, and a brindled coat pattern. Meerkats are extremely social, and often groom or play with each other. They tend to live in groups; Meerkat groups have a highly developed social structure, with individuals playing various important roles in the community.


The quokka, also known as the short-tailed scrub wallaby. Known as the happiest animals in the world, Quokkas are herbivores who primarily feed at night, meaning they are mainly nocturnal. They eat the leaves, stems, and bark of many plants in addition to grass. If necessary, they can survive for long periods of time without food or water by living off the fat stored in their tails.
