Meet Nigel The 'Coendou' – The Cutest Animal You've Never Seen (Pics & Video)

Cuteness comes in all shapes, sizes, and...textures? Yep! Even prickly critters can tip the charts on the sweetness scale, and Nigel is no exception. This cool dude is one of Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium's most unusual species, a coendou, which falls under the porcupine family. They're sometimes called prehensile-tailed porcupines because of their tail's ability to grasp objects, and if that's not cool, we don't know what is.

Did you ever think you would find a prickly porcupine cute? No? Well, keep scrolling and your thoughts might just take a turn. Love has no boundaries. Right? A video featuring this absolutely adorable creature "Coendou"(a member of the porcupine family) caught people's attention, thus defining love a whole other way.
