Animals come in all shapes and sizes, from extremely tiny to awesomely huge. Being huge has its advantages but being little has many advantages as well. Smaller animals need fewer resources to survive, can reproduce more often, and have more hiding options. However, larger animals are more intimidating and harder to overpower; they have a buffer if resources become scarce and can more easily escape predators. The beauty of our world is that there are animals of all shapes, sizes, and types.
