If your answer is “go to the other end of the world” – read on. We will tell you where and at what time of the year the cutest animals in the world are waiting to meet you.
1. Swimming pigs in the Bahamas
In the blue waters of the Caribbean Sea, there is an uninhabited island called Big Major Cay, also known as Pig Island. The fact is that if the pigs believed in paradise, they probably would have been in the Bahamas. Nowhere in the whole world do piglets live as carefree as on Major Kay. It is not known exactly how the first animals came to the island, but today their wild descendants have fully adapted to unusual conditions. They bask in the sun and swim in the sea. Paradise life instilled in them friendliness – they gladly swim up to tourists and take goodies from their hands.
2. Seal Cubs in Quebec
Perhaps the cutest animals in the world are waiting for you in February on the Madeleine Islands in Canada. This is a special time for these places and for harp seals. They are sent here to leave offspring. Within three weeks, charming cubs can be found in their natural habitat. You have the opportunity to enjoy the touching sight without disturbing their peace. Chateau Madelinot offers helicopter tours of the island, where you can take pictures of newborn seals.
3. Sacred dogs in Nepal
October is the perfect month for all dogs in the Himalayas. For five days, even stray dogs look like the cutest animals in the world. This happens in Nepal at the height of the holiday Kukar Tihar. All dogs, without exception, are fed, colorful collars tied to them, which are more like Hawaiian wreaths, and draw a red dot on the forehead.
4. Unhurried sloths in Costa Rica
These shaggy creatures have won the hearts of most animal lovers around the world with their unusual look, expressing extreme melancholy. If you want to take a few lessons of lethargy from sloths, head to Costa Rica. Here they have a real “temple of laziness” called Aviarios del Caribe.
5. Countless rabbits in Japan
The furry inhabitants of Okunoshima Island, claiming to be the “cutest animals in the world”, emphasize quantity rather than quality — there are really a lot of them on a small piece of land. The fact is that in this habitat there is no predator that would threaten their existence. It is not surprising that Okunoshima, like Major Kaye, has lost its original name and is now known to tourists as “Rabbit Island” (not to be confused with a bay in the Primorsky Territory). If your dream is to suffocate from tenderness in the “fluffy sea”, go to Japan immediately!
