WARNING: This is the cutest creature on the planet. Or at the very least in the Top 5 list. The Eastern Pygmy Opossum is a nocturnal marsupial that has a brilliant little prehensile tail that allows it to grip branches, making for easy travel through bushes. I DARE YOU to find a cuter little animal.
