Too cute. :)

It always makes me chuckle when I see a young animal cuddling a teddy bear or other fluffy toy.  Many years ago, at the Blue Cross, where eventually Talisker came from, some of the kittens there had cuddly toys in the cages with them.  Mostly the ones that weren't sharing their cage with another kitten, I guess so that they had something to cuddle up to.
Actually, it is rocket science.

Incredibly cute, but for all that they're pygmy hippos, I bet an adult is still quite a bit larger than you'd want walking around the house!

There's nothing cute about hitapotumuses.  When they're not trying to bite you in half, they're spraying poo everywhere, and they couldn't even help you wash the car.

A baby moomin would be much more practical.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Well, that's reality clashing with the appearance of cuteness.  Given that Hippos apparently kill more people than any other animal (aside from Homo Sapiens) in Africa, arguably they aren't a particularly cute animal.

Baby Pygmy Hippos are still rather cute though!

(I am biased, I have a couple of plush Hippos, Harry and Harry Jnr, and my work PC is named Hippo. :)).

Dunno, but lets take it as referring to large beasties, otherwise you also get into the realms of diseases and food poisoning.

As a human, I'm always impressed by animals who manage to give birth to young that are fully formed and just need a little rest, unfolding and encouragement before they're on their feet and ready to being the serious business of Running Away From Things.

That said, if we gave birth to fully-functional teenagers, we'd probably give up on reproduction as a bad idea entirely  :D

A baby moomin would be much more practical.

Back in the dim and distant past, some of the larger Mediterranean islands had their own pygmy fauna (a reduction in size of large animals being one of the symptoms of an isolated genepool, see Shetland Ponies*).  This included elephants.

Imagine a fully grown elephant the size of a large dog.

Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

*whereas smaller animals in the same isolated population tend to be larger. See Orkney Vole. Apparently the optimum size for a mammal, if there are no predation issues, is that of a large domestic cat.
If I had a baby elephant, it could help me wash the car. If I had a car.
