The world's smallest things ever

World’s Smallest Dog OK, Meet Ducky from Charlton, Massachusetts, the who holds the current title of the world’s smallest dog. He’s just 1.4 pound and 4.9 inches tall!


World’s Smallest Fish Scientists discovered this Paedocypris progenetica fish in forest swamps on the Indonesian island of Sumatera. The fish is only 7.9 mm long (about 1/3 inch long)! The title, however, is contested: two other fish, the 7 mm long male stout infantfish (Schindleria brevipinguis) and the 6.2 mm long male anglerfish (Photocorynus spiniceps) said that they should’ve been the world’s smallest fish.



World’s Smallest Violin Eric Meissner made not just one, but two of the world’s smallest functional violins (the smallest one is 1 5/8" or 4.1 cm long).



World’s Smallest Church Roadside America found the world’s smallest church: the Cross Island chapel, which has this interesting story: Cross Island Chapel, "The World’s Smallest Church," sits on a wooden platform in the center of a pond. A billboard near the road details everything you need to know: "Built in 1989. Floor area 51 inches by 81 inches (28.68 square feet). Seats two people. Non-denominational. Dedicated as a witness to God." Years ago a newspaper account of a wedding held at Cross Island Chapel, with only room to accommodate the minister, bride and groom. The rest of the wedding partyanchored nearby in small boats. Guests on shore imagined how the vows went. It’s open to the public on request, and accessible only by boat.



And finally, world’s smallest toilet, winner of Most Bizarre (how appropriate) micrograph contest.




World’s Smallest Baby to Survive Rumaisa, the world’s smallest baby to survive weighed only 244 grams (8.6 ounces) - less than a can of soda - when she was delivered by caesarean section after just 26 weeks of pregnancy.


World’s Smallest Guitar Dustin Carr and Harold Craighead of Cornell University’s Nanofabrication Facility created the Nano-guitar - it’s only 10 micrometers long (about the size of a single cell). The guitar strings are each about 50 nanometers or 100 atoms wide!


World’s Smallest Cat Meet Mr. Peebles, who at 6.1 (15.5 cm) in high and 19.2 in (49 cm) long, is the world’s smallest cat. The cute cat fits perfectly in a regular 8 oz glass!


World’s Smallest Horse At just 60 lb and 17-inch tall, the five-year-old Thumbelina is the world’s smallest horse! The little horse was born to Paul and Kay Goessling, who specialize in breeding miniature horses, but even for the breed Thumbelina is particularly small: she is thought to be a dwarf-version of the breed! But apparently her small size didn’t hamper her attitude: But despite this massive difference in size, it is feisty Thumbelina who rules the roost over the stallions and racehorses on her 150-acre farm.



The world’s smallest cattle is a rare breed of an Indian zebu called the Vechur cow. The average height of this breed of cattle is 31 to 35 inches (81 to 91 cm). The photo above shows a 16 year old Vechur cattle as compared to a 6 year old HF cross-breed cow.
