Momongas – Japanese Dwarf Flying Squirrels – are simply the cutest animals alive. They have big eyes, and they are so fluffy I’m gonna die. These little innocent flying squirrels live in the mountain forests of Japan. They have cousins all over the world – sugar gliders, their possum friends, are quite common as pets. But there is only one true Momonga, and that one lives in Japan.

We have rounded up 33 of the cutest pictures we could find. Enjoy! :)
