Micro-Piglet Hugs a Strawberry
Richard Austin/REX USA
Quiet over there with your guttural noises – yes, you. We warned you, didn't we?

This impossibly-tiny and blissful looking cutie – variously known as a micro, mini, teacup or pygmy pig – is from England's famous Pennywell Farm, where they're specially bred to be extra, extra small and friendly.

When the piglets are born, they usually weigh just 8 ounces, and grow up to be as big as a springer spaniel – which is still just a fifth the size of a regular pig.
