WATCH: Baby glider no bigger than a human finger

COULD this possibly be the cutest, tiniest creature in the world?

The folks at Taronga Zoo certainly think so!

The zoo released new footage of their baby feather-tail gliders after the adorable creatures took their first steps outside the safety of mother's pouch.

The video shows the babies clinging to a bottle-brush and then, perhaps the greatest source of joy, wrapped around the hand of one of the staff - the baby no bigger than the little finger!

The zoo said in a post that babies were born around two months ago but have only just begun to emerge after growing out of their nursery.

"Feather-tails usually stay in the pouch for about 63 days, before getting so large that the mother's feet can no longer touch the ground."
