While not an official SCI quest like the African Big Five or the North American Grand Slam, the Tiny Ten can be just as challenging and fulfilling. Their diminutive size, extreme speed and choice of habitat bring their own set of challenges to the hunt. Here are the top of the Tiny Ten from the SCI Record Book.
