The smallest mammal in the world, this tiny bat weighs less than 2 grams. Its body is about the size of a large bumblebee, hence the common name “bumblebee bat”. Since it was first described in 1974 this tiny mammal has been disturbed by collectors and tourists wanting to see the world’s smallest mammal. Today the main threats are from burning of the forest areas near the limestone caves in which it lives.
