Feast Your Eyes

Move aside, Pygmy Tarsier--there's a new pygmy in town! The Pygmy Jeroba is smaller! Cuter! Has more alien-like eyes!

I was hypnotized by this video. Only the Japanese could so romanticize a miniature rodent feasting on tiny shreds of cabbage.



Not enough? Need more big-eyed pygmy action? Enjoy:



Kind of has a rat/duckling hybrid feel, no?

A real live pokemon character! Amazing. How do you find these things? It would make a great subject for a children's picture book.

That bottom picture reminds me of the red monster in the Bugs Bunny cartoons:
