Selvagem Pequena Island (lit. Small Wild/Savage Island; size: 800 x 500 m) is an island in the Southeast Group of the Savage Islands, Madeira, Portugal. Its fauna and flora are well-preserved due to lack of human interference.

In the 1890 book The Cruise of the Alerte, the island was called the 'Great Piton'.

It has an active lighthouse.[1]
