This wooly pig was discovered in the mid-19th century. Such a shame that it didn’t become a common pet like dogs or cats.

Such a cutie!
6. Emperor tamarin
Check out the fabulous moustache on this one. Looks a bit like an actual emperor or an old, wise man, huh?
5. Patagonian Mara
A cross between a kangaroo and a hare?
They look like giant plushie toys!
4 – Markhor Goat
It’s like he’s trying to catch an alien radio signal from space.
3. Raccoon dog
Can’t decide whether you want to get a dog or a raccoon? We have just the thing for you!
2. Blue Footed Booby
Their turquois legs never fail to catch attention. By the way, these birds have very amusing mating rituals.

These eyes probably see a lot, and they definitely find everything surprising.
