Scientists Share Weirdly Wondrous Animals In Twitter #CuteOff

SO MANY THINGS TO SQUEE ABOUT!!!

Major props to these scientists for introducing us to a whole new world of wonderfully wacky animals. 

People in the science community took to Twitter, this week to participate in the most adorable social media battle known to mankind -- the #CuteOff. Scientists -- being scientists -- went off the beaten path and shared photos of some uniquely awesome animals that may not necessarily come to mind when you think of "cute."

They posted pictures of cool critters like a baby cuttlefish,  and a Lowland streaked tenrec (trust us, it's adorbz.)  

Lucky for us, the #CuteOff got pretty heated and now we have so many more animals to gush over. 

Check out some awesome animals from the #CuteOff below.
