50 Photos Of Cute Animals That Can Fit On Your Fingertip

by Damjan

Small animals wake up some protective instinct in us, and we just want to pet them, cuddle with them. But we can’t. They are so small we would probably hurt them.

But we can watch their photos and just say unconsciously repeat awwwwwww. And who can blame us?

An excellent 80k- strong subreddit called “Tiny Animals on Fingers” is dedicated to celebrating these beautiful beings. Some of these animals are just babies, and they will be slightly bigger when they grow up, and others are fully grown-up animals that can fit on the tip of your finger.

If this diversity of the wildlife around us doesn’t make you appreciate nature more, we don’t know what will. Nature is such a wonderful and amazing thing, and we should do whatever we can to protect it.

Keep in mind that some of these animals you are about to see are endangered species, and they need our help. If we are not careful, these pics will be all that’s left of them.

"Help Wildlife," a British charity-run advice website shares advice about how we can protect them:" To avoid disturbing small animals when in nature, it's best to stick to established pathways where possible.

If you see a nest or other animal habitat, only observe from a distance, never try to touch or interfere. If you have a dog friend walking with you, make sure they're kept under control, and they're not allowed to disturb or harm wildlife," Sarah, from "Help Wildlife," says.

Sarah from "Help Wildlife" says that traffic has "a tremendous impact" on wildlife of all sizes. "As well as the obvious accidents, roads also divide and reduce their natural territories," she explained. Luckily, some people pay attention.

"Some forward-thinking countries create wildlife crossings when building new roads these days, which can be helpful. Otherwise, the best way to prevent the loss of life is to drive carefully, especially in areas with lots of wildlife or where there is undergrowth at the side of the road, which animals may dart out from. If an animal comes into contact with your car, then always stop and check on them and try to find them help," Sarah added.

We can all help. Sara says that in the UK, you can check for wildlife rescues by following this link. For the US, you can use Animal Help Now.

So, if we want to see more of these wonderful creatures, we have to make sure their natural surroundings are undisturbed and that the animals are protected. If we all do our share, our grand kids can enjoy these animals too.
