The Great little creatures

ALL CREATURES GREAT & SMALL
THE SMALLEST AND CUTEST CREATURES


Sometimes I go back to the Nostalgic memories of my 'kiddy old days' 
Those soft, loving and shinning memories always make me feel young !
There are many memories that make me to  re-live those life....How many stories I am told and read.!
One such story which always fascinated me is the Gulliver’s travel !

I still remember the cute little Lilliputian sheep which Gulliver took in his coat pocket when he left  Lilliput, and the one who saved him in England as the only evidence to prove his words from the Jury, from declaring him as a 'Mad Man'.

Now my thought process flow over the real life small little creatures in the world, which I would like to share with you.
