a bat = 2nd Smallest flying vertebrate




I agree that Anurognathus is probably the smallest known pterosaur, but it is large compared to either the smallest bird (bee hummingbird) or the smallest living mammal (bumblebee bat of Thailand).
Although the bee hummingbird is apparently slightly smaller, this bat (Craseonycteris) is one of my favorite animals, particularly because it is so badly endangered. Here's a picture:
