i haven't done a Cool Animal photodump in a while and i have a whole pinboard of Fun Cool Animals now so get ready everyone. here is a mongoose with the sweetest face i have ever seen

procyonidae are underappreciated lil buddies

here is a coati enjoying a snack in the sunshine

being a dormouse field researcher sounds like a fun job though realistically it's probably a lot of trudging through cold muddy fields and thornbushes in the dead of a miserable English winter
but i want to Hold the Mouse

it's really easy for researchers to check up on them when they're in torpor/hibernating so we get lots of delightful photos like these

in Denmark they call this specific species 'hasselmus' which means 'hazel mouse' :3
