Things are always cuter when they're smaller

Extinct dwarf water buffalo has been discovered. Closely related to water buffalos in Indonesia, but tinier, therefore the cuteness is exponentially compounded.

It lived between 10,000 and 100,000 years ago, meaning it was still alive when humans crossed the land bridge to North American 12,000 years ago. It was the perfect size for homo florensesis (if they even existed) to buck around on around in a pre-human rodeo.
