20 of the smallest animals in the world

It is true that animals can come in all sizes, small – medium – large and extra large, there are some animals that are very “petite”. I am not talking about penguins because you know that we go in the medium scale (some of us can step up in the large scale). Some of the animals (let’s call them this way, because they can be called insects as well) are not even visible to the human eye since they are know to measure 0.0002mm in length while a parasitic wasp can be as small as 0.0001mm long. For that reason I decided to put together 20 of them, so you can see that our world is full of surprises (btw I tried to add a penguin in the list as a bonus feature, hope you like him!). “HT” heavy
