~Trixie's Tantalizing Animal Tales~ March 3rd
Thank you for your paws of support for my campaign yesterday sweet furiends! I’m sending out a big meow of thanks along with giant hugs of appreciation to LOLA & THE BA KITTIES for being such wonderful hosts on our trip to the Lujan Zoo in their country of Argentina & also to our fantastic pilots HOT ROD & WINSLOW as well as chief coordinator of our feline air travel PETE! Okay,I know some of you may still be sleepy after being gone all day yesterday so I’ve filled our living room with bean bag chairs so you can curl up & rest up as I meow about some more of the world’s smallest animals.
THUMBELINA, THE SMALLEST HORSE IN THE WORLD! At 17-inches tall, Thumbelina is currently the world's smallest pony. She was just 5 years old when she made it into the Guinness Book of Records and lives on a farm with a couple who specialize in breeding miniature horses. The World’s Smallest Horse according to Guinness World Records is Thumbelina from Missouri, but another tiny horse named Einstein may take her place when he turns 4, which is the minimum age required for the record. EINSTEIN is from New Hampshire and unlike Thumbelina, he doesn’t have any dwarfish features, he has the same proportions as any other horse – he’s just much, much smaller. Einstein is only 35 cm tall (14 inches) and weighs 2.7 kg (6lb). Thumbelina is 44.5 cm (17.5 in) tall, so even if Einstein grows a little, the chances of he becoming the official smallest horse in the world are quite high. He was born in April 2010, so he still needs to wait a little longer until he becomes eligible for the title. WOW…my dog Sammie is bigger than both of these horses so they’re definitely small! Now we move on to something we can sink our teeth…err…minds into. A favorite of felines around the world is birds so after a little research I found what exactly the tiny morsels…err, specimens I was looking for.
The world's smallest bird is the BEE HUMMINGBIRD. The Bee Hummingbird is about the size of a, you guessed it, bee. That translates to 2.5 inches or 6.2 cm in length and 1.6 grams or 0.06 oz. in weight. The Bee Hummingbird also lays the world's smallest bird eggs which are about the size of your mom or dad’s smallest fingernail. Another really small bird is the LITTLE PENGUIN. This bird is the smallest species of penguin discovered so far. The penguin, which is about 16 in tall, is found on the coastlines of southern Australia and New Zealand. They have several common names. In Australia, they are referred to as Fairy Penguins because of their tiny size. In New Zealand, they are called Little Blue Penguins, or just Blue Penguins.
Ok kitties… that’s a wrap for today! Thanks for listening to me meow about some of the world’s smallest animals. UHM…just one request & that is…whoever drooled all over the bean bags in the back please wipe up your mess before you go home…MOL! Thank you for your loving support & I hope you have a purrfectly pawsome day!

Loving hugs & a vote,
