The world’s smallest known cetacean is the Vaquita (Phocoenca sinus). Also known as the Cochito, the vaquita has a very limited habitat, living solely in the Gulf of Mexico near the Baja Peninsula and at full maturity only grows to between 4-5 feet (1.2-1.5 m) and 65-120 pounds (30-55 kg). With less than 100 known individuals to be alive, the vaquita is also the world’s most endangered cetacean.
