9. Roe deer
The roe deer is chestnut-brown, roughly the size of a goat and native to England.
According to the British Deer Society, it's not difficult to spot roe deer on a walk in the woods.
"If you were to walk very quietly through any reasonable size wood for an hour immediately following first light you would probably see wild deer of one species or another," says its website.
Wildwood, a park in Kent, England, is home to several species of deer, including the roe deer. Entry is £9.95 ($15).
8. Bottlenose dolphin
In captivity, bottlenose dolphins are praised for their intelligence and therapeutic qualities -- swimming with dolphins is supposedly good for one's mental health.
In the wild dolphins can get aggressive and form gangs.
It doesn't really seem to matter for most people -- dolphins are still adorable.
Australia has Dolphin Wild Moreton Island Cruises, but bottlenose dolphins can be found in most warm or tropical oceans around the world.
Domesticated for thousands of years, the alpaca is valued for its gloriously fleecy hair, which is used to make sweaters.
The fleecy hair also gives them a woolly, squeezable appearance.
Alpacas are cute despite the fact that they can be quite testy.
You can mingle with alpaca at any of the numerous alpaca farms in Peru, such as Mallkini, a farm with the tagline "Alpaca Ranch and Adventure."
Machu Picchu is another great place for alpaca sightings; as a protected Incan ruin, alpacas frolic without fear of being shorn -- which decreases their cuteness considerably.
6. Bee hummingbird
The bee hummingbird from Cuba, the smallest bird in the world, isn't only tiny -- it weighs less than a U.S. penny -- it's fast, beating its wings up to 80 times a second.
No larger than a bee, it also acts like one, helping plants reproduce by transferring pollen as it flits from flower to flower sipping nectar. And it flits to a lot of flowers, eating every 10 minutes.
Authentic Cuba Tours runs a birdwatching tour starting at $1,949.
5. Sea otter
Sea otters are as clever as they are cuddly.
They use rocks as tools to crack open clams and mussels for food and sleep floating face-up on the surface of the water with tangled kelp anchoring them in place.
It's really the "rafting" that wins you over.
Sea otters are sociable and float together in groups of up to 100, frequently clasping paws so that they don't drift away from each other.
