By length the smallest animal is Kitti’s Hog-nosed Bat (the bumblebee bat) which is found in Thailand and Myanmar. It is 30-40 mm in length and 1.5-2 g in weight. By mass the smallest mammal is the Etruscan Shrew, although it is larger than the bumblebee bat is the size of its skull. The now extinct Batodonoides vanhouteni only weighed 1.3 g and is probably the smallest mammal to ever live.
The smallest mammal is the Kitti’s hog nosed bat (also known as the bumble bee bat). This species of bat only weighs about two grams, which is about the weight of a single dime. These bats usualy only reach a length of slightly more than one inch. This makes this mammal smaller than some insects even. They are only found in a remote area in Thailand.
The smallest mammal is the Kitti’s hog-nosed bat, also known as the bumblebee bat. It is 30-40mm long (around 1-1.5in) and weighs only 2g. The next smallest mammal is perhaps the American pygmy shrew. This tiny rodent is 1.5-2in long and weighs .07oz (about 2g). Their small size is matched by their short lifespan: 11-13 months. With so little time on this earth, they try to make the most of it and only sleep for a few minutes at a time.
