I had never ever heard of this type of deer before! A pudu fawn was born at the Queen’s Zoo in New york city on May 12, 2015. The tiny baby came into the world evaluating less than a pound and standing 6 inches tall!
The pudu is the smallest deer types in the world and is native to Argentina and Chile, where it is an endangered species. Pictures of the tiny deer released by the zoo are going viral and I can see why.
A site visitor to the zoo took a snapshot of the baby deer roughly 10 days after it was born and posted it to the zoo’s Facebook web page. Isn’t he lovable?
The little critter is still nursing, but beginning to eat leaves, kale, and carrots. He will certainly lose the white spots when he grows up, which won’t be way too much. Adult pudus expand to around a foot high.
