The Question: The vaquita is the world’s smallest what?
The vaquita, meaning “baby cow” in Spanish, is a small porpoise found in the Gulf of Mexico. At around 5 feet long, they are the smallest cetacean (family of whales and dolphins) in the world. Sadly, these adorable creatures are critically endangered, and there are only around 20 vaquitas left in the wild.
The correct answer is Porpoise.
