Last week Twitter's scientists and science enthusiasts supplied us with the jaw dropping hashtag, #JunkOff. And this week they’re back, but with a slightly more... family friendly hashtag.
We give you… the #CuteOff. We’ve trawled through the tweets (a hard job I can assure you) hand picking the cutest ones we could find – but feel free to get involved on Twitter or leave us a comment with the cutest creature you’ve ever seen.
People are posting all sorts of adorable animal pics in this #CuteOff: http://t.co/KeSgqh75Lt pic.twitter.com/t7EtI6aTj0

Each to their own of course, as one Twitter user added a slightly more unusual nomination for cutest creature
Whatever you call them--tardigrades, water bears, moss piglets--they sure are cute! #CuteOff http://t.co/anPPQVdy06 pic.twitter.com/4zWrr4rvip
