Near the tops of the Tianshan mountain range in northwestern China lives a creature so adorable it’s hard to tell, at first glance, if it’s even real. The teddy bear-faced Ili pika, first discovered in 1983 by conservationist Li Weidong, had not been photographed for nearly twenty years until Weidong stumbled across one in July 2014.

If you’ve ever considered adopting a pet from a shelter, you know how hard it can be choose just one when there are so many animals deserving of your attention and love.
