Yesterday, I learned that a baby Spiny Anteater is called a “puggle.”
To me, “puggle” conjurs up images of cuddly, snuggly creatures, perhaps with some downy feathers or soft fur. This is not the case with a Spiny Anteater puggle.
Spiny Anteater puggles look a little like an elephant, grey with a long snout. They have short, stubby legs, webbed feet, a round belly, and round eyes. They have smooth skin; their fur and spines grow in as they age.
Puggles are not classically cute animals. Nevertheless, they are cute in their own baby way.
How could anything called a puggle not be adorable?
