So I've discovered the world's cutest critter and I don't want to hear any argument. There is simply nothing cuter than baby pygmy hippopotamuseseses.

A full-sized pygmy hippo is about the size of a large dog, so the babies are the size of puppies with the added bonus of ridiculous cuteness.

Pygmy hippos are very similar to regular-sized hippos in diet and behavior, and like their larger cousins, primarily nocturnal in the wild.

They live in the swamps of West Africa, primarily Liberia. and they're so endangered that there may only be about 2.500 remaining in the wild. A similar species of tiny hippos native to Madagascar is now extinct, as is a subspecies native to Nigeria.

The good news is they seem to thrive in captivity, meaning their numbers may rebound once their zoo populations can be reintroduced to the wild. In the meantime, they're friendly and photogenic while in captivity.

Anyway, take the Quiz and come back and tell us how you did and enjoy pics of pygmy hippos.

Don't forget the Easy Quiz!

Good luck, and let me know if you have any issues.

I use voice mail quite frequently, because I never answer calls from numbers I do not recognize.  Plus people call my work phone after hours all the time, so I get to check voice mails every morning.

I think a pygmy hippo would be more like a Paris Hilton accessory.

There are 'no easy fixes' in Florida.

How about voting out DeathSantis and the Republican legislature and go from there.

Okay.

Baby Stoat doesn't need to argue.
