Meet the world's cutest rodent

This tiny creature that looks like a cross between a cotton ball and a miniature kangaroo might be the cutest rodent anyone has seen.

It is called a Baluchistan Pygmy Jerboa and it is the world's smallest rodent. These tiny creatures are about 5cm long.

According to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature's Red List of Threatened Species, they are native to the deserts of Pakistan.

Their comically large feet allow them to leap around like kangaroos, and they have highly sensitive hearing so they can detect predators approaching.
