The World’s Smallest Deer Was Born In New York

The male pudu is six inches tall and weighs one pound!

About a month ago, a male pudu (the world’s smallest deer species) was born in the Queens Zoo in the Big Apple. When he was born, he was just six inches tall and six inches long, and weighed one pound. The Wildlife Conservation Society says his tiny white spots are characteristics only for young ones, and will fade as he grows up. At full growth, he’ll be about 12 to 14 inches.

He’s now the third pudu who lives at the Queens Zoo. Check out the little guy below:
