The bumblebee bat, also known as Kitti's hog-nosed bat or Craseonycteris thonglongyai, is the smallest bat in the world and one of the smallest mammals in the world. It just so happens to be one of the cutest mammals in the world as well. It weighs about 0.07 oz, it grows up to about 1.3 inches, and it is endangered, so it's time to give it some love.
These tiny creatures have a pig-like snout, and they're so small they can easily fit on the tip of your finger. Us, animal people, have a tendency to love any tiny animal, and this one is no exception. So, get to know these guys if you haven't heard of them yet, aww at their cuteness, and hope that there will be more of them as time goes on.
