9. PYGMY RABBIT
The pygmy rabbit is the smallest rabbit in the world!! They are native only to the great basin area of the United States and are extremely rare since they are hunted by everything and are limited to where they can live in the winter based on the type of grass they can eat.
8. ETRUSCAN SHREW
The Etruscan shrew goes by several aliases, including the Etruscan pygmy shrew and white-toothed pygmy shrew.
It’s the smallest known mammal in the world by mass and only grows to about 4 centimeters (1.6 inches) long – just a bit larger than the average bumblebee!!
7. PYGMY MARMOSET
This tiny monkey species can fit in the palm of your hand and weighs about the same as a stick of butter. They are only about 5-6 inches long, including the tail!
Native to the rainforests of the Western Amazon basin in South America, it can be found in Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, Brazil, and Colombia.
6. BEE HUMMINGBIRD
Like the Etruscan shrew, the bee hummingbird is known by several names, including the zunzuncito- after the sound their wings make in Spanish- Zun-zun!! It’s the world’s smallest bird and the world’s smallest warm-blooded vertebrate. They are native to Cuba, and can be found on the country’s second-largest island, Isla de la Juventud, or Isle of Youth.
5. SLENDER BLIND SNAKE
While nonvenomous, the next animal on this list isn’t exactly snuggly. slender blind snakes, also known as the worm snake or the thread snake, are tiny snakes with very smooth scales.
A total of 87 species of slender blind snakes are thought to exist all over the world.
4. SPECKLED PADLOPER TORTOISE
The speckled padloper tortoise is the world’s smallest turtle, and it sure packs a whole lot of cuteness into a tiny little package. Like some of the other species on this list, females are slightly larger than males, measuring up to four inches long (ten centimeters). They only weigh about 100-165 grams! Also about the same as a stick of butter!
The Paedocypris is a genus encompassing the world’s smallest fish, which measure just 7.9 millimeters, in length. It’s so small, you can see it with the naked eye, but you would probably need a magnifying glass to get a detailed look! Paedocypris resides in the swamps and streams of the Southeast Asian islands known as Bintan, Borneo, and Sumatra.
2. KITTI’S HOG-NOSED BAT
I’m not even going to try pronouncing the scientific name of the Kitti’s hog-nosed bat, also nicknamed the bumblebee bat, which hails from Thailand and Burma. Measuring only 1.1 to 1.6 inches long, the bumblebee bat is the world’s smallest bat. Both of its common names are appropriate since it has a distinctive pig-like snout and is small like a bumblebee just like the hummingbird I mentioned before!
1. MADAME BERTHE’S MOUSE LEMUR
Berthe’s lemur resides mainly in Kirindy Mitea National Park, located in western Madagascar. This nocturnal species has very large eyes to help it see at night. It was only recently discovered in 1992, and was only categorized as its own species as recently as the year 2000. Everyone at first confused it with the pygmy lemur.
