Discovered just on an islet just off the coast of Madagascar, the Brookesia Micra is one of the smallest reptiles out there, small enough to balance on the tip of a match!

Pets to the stars, bacon to others (not really), Pot Bellied Pigs are the smallest pig breed out there. Not only are they adorable, they are easily house trained.
