Beautiful African Bug Looks Like A Picasso Painting

Okay, hold on a second, before you leave screaming "BUGS!" at us, stop for one moment and look at this one. We know, we know, bugs are kinda eww-y sometimes, but not this one. This one is as beautiful as a painting, specifically, a Picasso painting. 

Meet the Picasso bug, otherwise known as Sphaerocoris annulus. It's a bug that's native to tropical and subtropical Africa, and it is one of the most beautiful bugs we've ever seen. Looking at this little guy brings us to the days of our childhood, when we were in kindergarten, playing around with the prettiest bugs around, no fear to be found in our tiny little palms. And maybe, after seeing this cool creature's pictures, you will feel the same way.

Cats Are Pawfect: Twitter Justly Defending Cats

Cats are the best. Every cat owner knows that. They can be jerks sometimes, that's true. When they suddenly start running full speed at 3am, knocking everything in their path, they do scare the life out of yes. And yes, may a curtain have suffered the wrath of our cat's claws, but... and the but is important, every moment of cat madness is worth the love that you feel when they cuddle next to you.

And today, twitter is on the defense, justly defending our little felines to all those who don't understand why cats are awesome. And they really are, it just takes some effort to get to know each of them before their unique and amazing personalities shine through. Also, look at the belly floof and the tiny paws omggg.

Giving Some Love To Awwdorable Endangered Numbats

There are so many amazing animals out there that we don't know about. Rare and special creatures that, as animal lovers, we wish we knew more about. One of them is the Numbat. Numbats are insectivorous marsupials, they're adorable, they're fluffy, they looks almost mythical, and there are only about 1000 of them left in the world. 

They're an endangered animal in need of help, and we think one of the best ways to help them is to spread awareness about them and show people pictures of how incredibly adorable they are. Because no one can withstand their cuteness. Another incredible way to help is to read up about them and consider donating at Project Numbat. But for now, let's take a look at how amazing they are

Baby Snapping Turtles Look Like Tiny Dinosaurs In Disguise

Turtles and tortoises are some of the coolest animals on the planet in our opinion. They live for so long, they're so resilient despite being so slow, they're chill and - don't forget - they're so adorable. They look like they're little prehistoric dinosaurs left on the earth from some time in the past, strolling around, watching the world evolve all around them. 

All turtles have that feeling to them, but baby snapping turtles really encapsulate that dinosaur image. On top of that, they might be some of the most adorable turtles we've ever seen. And considering how cute we think all turtles are, that's a real achievement lol.

Not-Yet-Spiky Baby Porcupine Fuzzballs (Pics)

You know, for an animal that is oh so scary and dangerous when its grown, porcupines are insanely cute when they're babies. When their huge quills have yet to grow, and they're still tiny little huggable fuzzballs, they are so cute and underrated it's basically criminal. So, it's time to give some love to yet another extremely underrated baby animal, and this time, it's the not-yet-spikiest fluffball. 

Let's be real though, us, animal lovers, have a special place in our hearts for the adorableness of dangerous animals-especially their ferocious baby versions. And this one is no different. It is definitely an animal that is much more awwdorable than you ever gave it credit for.

Little-Known White Leopard Tortoises Appreciation

Tortoises are cool. That's an inarguable fact. Tiny tortoises, big tortoises, all tortoises are cool as heck. They can live up to 150 years old, and there's even one who has lived up to 255 years. And tortoises basically carry a shield on their backs all day long and are therefore basically invincible. If that's not cool, we don't know what is. 

But have you ever seen a white leopard tortoise? Now, in the hierarchy of tortoise coolness, they possibly take the first spot. Only possibly though, because, as stated previously, all tortoises are the coolest tortoises.

We love cats. That's a fact. All of you here who have clicked on this list love cats completely.

They're dangerous, they're super duper cute. We want to pet each and every one of them even though we know they're dangerous. They're just... so cat-like-looking, and our brains automatically want to pet every single cat that they see. Well, we can love them from afar, at least.

Ferocious But Smol Tiger Cubs

I know you wanna pet them! I know, I do too, but they are too dangerous. Or... are they? They definitely don't look like it. Not when they're itty bitty teeny weeny baby cubs. They look so floofy and cute and too pet-able. Just once in our lives, please, we would like to pet one of these ferocious cats

Of course, we don't mean to offend you, you majestic little felines. Just because you are smol and awwdorable, doesn't mean that you are also not the smallest, most fiercest kittens in the animal kingdom, and we have all the respect in the world for you. We also desperately wanna cuddle you.

Viscachas Look Like They're Perpetually Done With Everything

Do you ever just feel... done with everything? Viscachas totally get you. They are cute, they are fluffy, they are soft, but my goodness, they are grumpiness encapsulated. Whoever knew that something so cute could look so done with life. 

They remind us of cats in that sense. Fluffy and cute but also really, really done with our human shenanigans. Still, viscachas take the win on this one, because at least cats are happy sometimes. Viscachas really are just... perpetually done. We understand them though. We get it. And considering not only how relatable they are, but also how painfully adorable they are, we would like to officially announce them as our spirit animals.

Precious And Awwdorable Spotted-Tail Quolls

Have you ever heard of the spotted-tail tiger quoll? Well, if you haven't, you're about to fall in love with them. They are so cute and criminally underrated and deserving of love. These cutie patooties are the second largest extant carnivorous marsupial, which, in simple words, means that they're tiny. 

Of course, you know why that's important information - tiny animals are extra cute animals and you will extra love them for it. They're also endangered, so it's all the more important to bring attention to them and their situation, and what's a better way of bringing awareness about them than fawning over their cuteness

Tokay Geckos Look Like Awwdorable Mini Dinosaurs

Get ready for some unexpected cuteness, because we are almost certain you've never thought of tiny tokay geckos as a cute animal. Well, you're about to be convinced otherwise. 

You might not think much of them, but these dinosaur-looking cuties have a reputation of being feisty little things that not everyone can (or should) handle as a pet. That doesn't mean they're not extremely cute to look at and fawn over, especially when you hear them making their little "To-kay! To-kay!" sounds. 

Myths say that they bring good luck too, so good luck, friends, and enjoy!

Underappreciated Awwdorable Hyaena Cubs

Prepare for some unexpected cuteness, animal lovers, because you're about to have your heart melted by the most unexpected animal. Hyenas. Yes, you read that right. Probably one of the animals with the worst reputation in the animal kingdom, but we're about to prove that perception wrong

It may be true that hyenas are dangerous, but so are lions and tigers and bears, but we love those anyway. And we especially love all these very adorably dangerous in their cute baby form. Hyena cubs are really no different in that sense- their babies are way, way more adorable than you'd ever expect.
