What is there to say about the Dormouse, the cutest animal in the world? First of all, the dormouse sleep three quarters of the year in a nest, which is instantly adorable. They weigh 15 to 30 grams, which is a totally portable Paris Hilton Pet™-sized, and they’re English, so you know when they talk, it’s absolutely charming.Mhd002sleepingdormice
