Their ferocity and thick, loose skin makes it difficult to grip or suffocate them. :hmz:

Kitti's Hog-nosed Bat is tailless or bumblebee bat is the smallest species of bat. It is also one of the world's smallest mammals, weighing in at 2 g and measuring 29 - 30 mm. It is arguably, the world's smallest wild land mammal.
Its closest competitor for the title is probably the Etruscan shrew, which may be slightly lighter at 1.2 - 2.7 g, but is much longer at 36 - 53 mm (not including its tail). So, depending upon how we define smallest, either of these mammals might fit the description.
