Wow, how does that happen anyway? Don't touch anything. Some of these pip squeaks can compete with the most formidable hunters out there. The smallest elephant is the Borneo pygmy there, about seven feet tall, which doesn't sound teeny. But remember, African elephants could get almost twice that at 13 feet. An interesting fact. The pygmy elephants tail can get so long that it drags on the ground as they walk. Not a teeny tail. Another diminutive member among this planet's giants, the dwarf sperm whale could easily be mistaken for a dolphin. It usually grows about seven feet long. Compare that to the world's largest whale, an animal overall. The blue whale. It's over 10 times longer. Cuvee is dwarf. Caiman is the puny ISS member of the crocodilians. When full grown, they get on Lee about four feet long, four times smaller than the salt water or American crack. But this anybody buddy is no pet. He's a ferocious carnivore that hunts and is rarely hunted among human species. It'll be Homo Florence IUs. Adults grew no longer than the average four year old boy today, 3.5 feet, and there hobbit like skulls were only about as big as a grapefruit. The rusty spotted cat is here to represent the world's little is, well, cat species. It's about 15 inches long and weighs a measly £3. That's way smaller than most house cats. And yes, people do domesticate these playful many kitties, though they are wild and probably prefer their natural habitat. Then you've got the dwarf lantern sharp, coming in at eight inches in length, which is slightly longer than a pencil. It looks like a baby, but this creature is full grown. But the coolest thing is that it feeds on krill and can emit light. The most petite house cat on record was a Himalayan Persian. His name was Tinkertoy, and he was only seven inches long. This'll full grown miniature kitty could easily fit in your palm. The little is can't breed. Overall is the single Hurreh. A brown chihuahua named Millie from Puerto Rico is the world's smallest dog. According to the Guinness Records. She's just under four inches tall, about the height of a soda can Joel's air also the runs among all dog breeds In general, the dinky ist dinosaur was a five inch long, birdlike creature found in a pebble sized piece of amber. It looks a lot like a hummingbird Onley. Its beak is lined with sharp teeth. Smallest snake could easily be confused with an earthwork. At just four inches in lake, slightly longer than a credit card, it belongs to a newly discovered species called thread snakes. Like worms, they mostly live underground but s snakes. These little guys are meat eaters and feed on termites and ants. For primates, there's Bertha's mouse Leamer. It lives only in Madagascar and his 3.5 inches long. It could swing on your finger like a tree branch. They don't hibernate in winter. Like other Leamer species, the pygmy possum is three inches long, a little bigger than your thumb. In winter, the possum rolls into a tight ball, closes its eyes with its ears and goes into temporary hibernation. Pygmy jer boa is an itsy bitsy two inch long road with a tail five times longer than its body. It looks like a cross between a tiny kangaroo and a mouse, you could easily confuse the bee hummingbird with a flying insect. Thanks to its size, this crumb is about two inches long the size of a golf tape, but they're still hardy and agile, by the way. Hummingbirds are the Onley birds that can fly backwards, theatrics, skin shrew, length between 1.5 and two inches, etc. But with a good appetite. This creature eats twice its weight in food every day, yet a tree could be about the same size. There's an unusual forest along the coast of the North Atlantic because of the strong Arctic winds. All the vegetation grows tini tiny here to protect itself from the bitter cold. Within this many forest, you can find the dwarf willow, the smallest tree species. It's hide is on Lee two inches, but it has wide leaves, half an ancient size to maximize the absorption of sunlight. The most miniature of all mammals is the win. Each long bumble bee back. The name is enough to get the message. Its body is about the size of a large bumble bait. Dinky ist reptile in the world is the broke Asia micro chameleon from Madagascar. It's about one inch in size, and it's got plenty of room sitting on the head of a match stick. The little ist octopus in the world is the octopus Wolfie. It's less than an inch long and could sit comfortably on a penny with room for its friends. Compare that to the Pacific giant octopus, which usually gets 20 feet long and weighs over £100. Yep, he's well armed. P crab is the minute ist of its family measuring half an inch across thes pea size, crustaceans like toe hang out in oysters and mussels, the smallest amphibian and the teen. C'est of all vertebrates is half the length of an aspirin just 1/3 of an inch long. It's a frog native to Papua New Guinea to of the specs will fit on your nail. Tiniest known fish in the world is the stout infant fish. It's just over 1/4 of an inch law. It has transparent skin and no scales or teeth. The world's smallest scorpion gets no bigger than 1/4 of an inch in length. By the way, free inches is the size of the most venomous species. The Indian Red Scorpion. But the smallest venomous creature in the world is the Aero Condi Jellyfish. It's less than 1/4 of an inch long. Like the head of a Q tip. This little guy's almost impossible to spot in the water, but its venom is as dangerous as a cobra by. Here's another pint size and nightmare inducer, the patio Diggle, a spider. It's so anybody that you could easily miss it, sitting right there on the tip of your finger. It's 1/3 of a millimeter long because inches just won't cut it at this point. And that's the width of just four pieces of paper stack. However, there's a unique small creature that could probably withstand any jellyfish, scorpion or spider venom. I'm talking about tar, degrades or water bears. Thes microscopic invertebrates. Half a millimeter in size are the most resilient creatures on the planet. They can be frozen, scorched and even survive in outer space. Fairy wasps are the world's mind nudist insects measuring just 0.14 millimeters There. As long as a sheet of paper is thick, you could line up almost 100 of them on the width of your pinky finger. Now entering the microscopic world. These tiny things are everywhere in the atmosphere, the depths of the ocean in glaciers and, of course, on an in our body bacteria. Just one well washed apple contains more than 100 million microbes. If you could squish them together, they'd be the size of a grain of sugar. In the human body, there are tens of trillions of bacteria, or about £3 worth. Don't worry, they're supposed to be there. And even among teeny tiny bacteria, there are ones considered smaller than normal, so microscopic. It's like it doesn't exist. It all 150,000 of these bacteria will fit on the tip of a human hair. The same number will fit on the largest bacterium that can be seen with the bear. I. Now there are some creatures that are 10 times tinier, the nose, ultra pint sized bacteria. It's called the Nano. This thing is so small that scientists still debate whether to consider it a living organism. The nano is only 20 nana meters and sides. You need to divide one inch in tow. About 40 billion parts to get one nanometer. All bacteria are microscopic single celled organisms, but there is one type you can hold in your hand and clearly see it's no bacteria, but it is single celled bubble algae, also known as sailors. Eyeballs. Yuck! This little green ball of algae is a little smaller than a baseball. It's difficult to study these organisms because they're so fragile. But we do know that they help process water in the ocean and produce useful nutrients. So was that small enough for you? Well, good.
