What is it about small animals that puts us in the mood to say, "awww?" In the case of these pygmy animals it might be because they are much more rare than their standard-sized relatives. Some of these pygmies are pocket-sized while others are big enough to carry a human being, but all of them are adorable. Check them out and vote for your favorites.

There are several different species of the Pygmy Owl, some of which are referred to as "owlets." The Ferruginous Pygmy Owl pictured here breeds in Arizona, Mexico, and a few other locations in South and Central America. This owl only grows to be about 6 inches high, about the same size as a sparrow.
