I know some animal are born small and some are only tiny when they are baby. However, I never know they are that mini. Some of them are really tiny, just around the finger size and some are slightly bigger, about one hand size. Anyway, check out this blog, welcome to our “Mini Tiny Animal Kingdom”.
All the images shown here are collected from Internet and forwarded email. I am trying to give the name of those tiny creatures. If I am wrong, please correct me. Thanks in advance.

The Pygmy Tarsier (Tarsius pumilus)
Also known as the Mountain Tarsier or the Lesser Spectral Tarsier, is a nocturnal primate found on central Sulawesi, Indonesia, in an area with lower vegetative species diversity than the lowland tropical forests. The Pygmy Tarsier was believed to have become extinct in the early 20th century. The first Pygmy Tarsiers seen alive since the 1920s were found by a research team from Texas A&M University on Mount Rore Katimbo in Lore Lindu National Park in August 2008.
