Dwarf bullfighters

<p>Dwarf bullfighters Miguel Angel Canche (C) and Jorge Vega (R) from Los Enanitos Toreros (Dwarf Bullfighters) stand together before their presentation at a bullring in Cancun May 29, 2011. The Enanitos Toreros are a group of six comedians from Yucatan who travel across Mexico entertaining audiences and carrying on a tradition born in Spain along with regular bullfighting. "Little people," as some prefer to be called, have been entertainers for centuries, being excluded by discrimination or their height handicap from many everyday professions. Unlike traditional bullfights, the animals are not harmed, and calves are used instead of full-size bulls. REUTERS/Victor Ruiz </p>
