We all love cute animals, but they are made even more special when they are so rare they can only be found on a remote island somewhere. The northern Japanese island Hokkaido is home to one of the most adorable species of squirrel out there, the Ezo momonga. These tiny flying squirrels look a lot like a real-life Pokemon with their giant eyes and fluffy fur. Well, I know where I'm going on vacation next!
Here are some adorable pictures of this mystical little creature.

Okay, hold up. Is this thing for real?

After doing some research, I found out that they are indeed real. 

Here is a momonga staring straight at the camera. Adorable.

Is this momonga seriously smiling?

Looks like he's enjoying himself quite a bit.
