Top 30 cutest animals in the world


Before the actual list, there are three things that I need to say.

  1. From among the hundreds of animals I checked out, I have chosen only those animals of which even the adults are cute. The reason for this is that pretty much all baby animals of most of the species are cute.
  2. The list below is subjective, this is my personal opinion.
  3. The animals listed are not in order of cuteness, except for the first five, which I find the cutest, in that order.

So without further ado, here's the list:

1. meerkats

bunnies are the greatest I hate cats and kittens they always take away rabbits from their owners my friend used to have a rabbit named Nora and she had to give her away because she got a pet cat named Max here is a list of animal I don't like:







I did not mention dogs because my dad had a rabbit and a dog at the same time and they never fought each other.

bunny lover H on July 13, 2013:

bunnies are the best they should be at number no animal could be cuter I even have a rabbit named holly she is the best of all bunnies oh and don't even think that any other animal is better because rabbit are not colour blind like dogs or have any problems and they are the perfect pet nothing could be better they don't even make a noise they are not boring or mean the only time they bite you is if you are being mean to them otherwise they are perfect and my rabbit has not bitten me for a couple months and when she did it did not really hurt
