This fellow is Brookesia micra, a tiny chameleon species newly discovered on the island of Madagascar. Seen here is a juvenile, but even an adult only reaches approximately one inch long. According to National Geographic, "Scientists (from Germany's Zoological State Collection) think the diminutive new chameleon species might represent extreme cases of island dwarfism, whereby organisms shrink in size due to limited resources on islands." #reddit

The finger monkey is the tiniest living primate in the world. It’s so small that it can hold on to your finger. Finger monkeys are, as a matter of fact, pygmy marmosets. They are also known by the names ‘pocket monkey’ and ‘tiny lion’. These primates belong to the family Callitrichidae, species Cebuella and genus C. pygmaea. They are native to rain-forests of Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador and Colombia. (Source: Buzzle) for
