One of the smallest animals in the world are a Paedophryne amauensis. It is a type of frog. You probably wonder how or why is it so small. It is from Papua New Guinea and is 7.7 mm (0.30 in) long. It is considered as the world's most smallest vertebrae. Their high-pitched calls sometimes sound like crickets.
Another very small animal is a Dwarf Three-toed Jerboa. They live in the Gobi Desert and other deserts with cold winters, so they hibernate in the winter. Several species of these animals, such as the Five-toed Pygmy Jerboa, are listed as a threatened species. These creatures can hop up to three meters (9.8 feet) when being chased by a predator.
