It’s not often that we see animals that are so small they can make themselves comfortable on our palms, but when it happens it’s a very enjoyable experience. A baby owlet that has just taken shower and is now cuddling in a blanket, a duckling that falls asleep in your hands, or a newborn mouse that’s so small you can only feed it with a paintbrush. The heroes of our article are tiny, sweet, and vulnerable, and they’ll make you feel warm and fuzzy till the end of the day.
We adore animals here at Bright Side and we felt a bit jealous of the people who got lucky enough to hold these 20 tiny cuties in their hands.
