This Adorable Creature Is A Pygmy Jerboa. It Looks Like A Pokemon, And I’m In Love!

Forget kittens and baby elephants, this tiny creature is the cutest, weirdest, most adorable animal I’ve ever seen. Topping the scale at measly 3.2 grams (0.11 ounces) it’s barely the weight of 3 standard size paperclips but it has plenty of character.

When I saw one for the first time it looked like a new kind of Pokemon to me but it’s actually a rodent endemic to Pakistan and it’s listed by Guinness World Book of Records as the World’s smallest rodent.

With or without the record, I just know I want to hold one.
