Some say that perfection doesn’t exist. But I have to be honest—after seeing this adorable little ball of fluff, I’m not sure if it’s true anymore.
This cutie is called a Japanese dwarf flying squirrel and it sort of looks like a real-life Pokemon. These incredible-looking creatures are native to Japan, where they inhabit sub-alpine and boreal evergreen forests on Honshu and Kyushu islands. The Japanese dwarf flying squirrel is quite small—its body is usually 6 to 8 inches long and it also has an adorable little tail that is 4 to 6 inches long.
Apparently, during the day, these creatures hide in a hole, usually in a coniferous tree, emerging at night to snack on some buds, leaves, bark, fruits, and seeds.
Bored Panda invites you to look at some of the most adorable photos capturing Japanese dwarf flying squirrels that were taken by nature and wildlife photographer Handa Natsumi.
