But today we’re getting cute, with critters that include a snake that can curl up on a quarter and a mammal that may have been the inspiration for Yoda. So enough with all the maiming and parasitizing (for now): These are the animal kingdom’s most bizarre yet endearing creatures. As per the usual, you can browse the full Absurd Creature of the Week archive here. You can also watch the companion show, available here. And if you have an animal you want me to cover, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or ping me on Twitter (@mrMattSimon). Now—onward to the unrelenting cuteness.
