I initially created the “small mammals” category thinking initially of rodents, cats, dogs, squirrels, chipmunks…but as I researched I realized that could include many species from a variety of different environments!  Representing the woodlands of a small town near you – raccoons, badgers, possums, beavers, groundhogs, rabbits.  On a farm you can find pigs, goats, and sheep.  “Small mammal” could even be used to aptly describe my favorite youtube sensation, the slow loris, as well as other exotic beasts koalas, wombats, red pandas, bush babies, lemurs and meerkats.  So really this playlist could have gone on and on and on and on.  Rather than barrage you with music though, I chose a selection of winners and will leave the research on songs about tasmanian devils to you.

And what small mammal playlist would be complete without a pop/electronica tribute to the worlds most famous mouse?

But because it’s so close to Friday and for some reason every playlist makes me think of a song that was well used in a children’s movie, here you go.
