The Queens Zoo is home to lots of furious creatures, some big, some small…and some definitely teeny. In fact, one of a minute babies now calls this Wildlife Conservation Society investiture home.
Born on May 12, 2015, this masculine pudu deer is happy, healthy, and 100% adorable. The zoo now houses 3 of a small species, that are local to Chile and are listed as exposed by a International Union for Conservation of Nature. They usually grow to be about a feet high during a shoulder. Despite their stature, these small deer are really agile. The newest member of this specific family demonstrates that quite well…
Look during him go!
He’s like a brew between a deer and a bunny…
This small man make small stairs demeanour like outrageous accomplishments!
Pudus are really extraordinary critters, and like to stay dark in brush to equivocate predators.
They have to censor from owls, cats, foxes, and pumas. They’ll also dart about in a crooked settlement to upset them.
But this man doesn’t have to worry about predators during his home, where he was bred as partial of a Species Survival Program…
The Queens Zoo describes this as “a mild tact module designed to raise a genetic viability and demographic fortitude of animal populations in zoos accredited by a Association of Zoos and Aquariums.”
Watch him rebound around and play with his mom!

If you’d like to see this small deer before he starts his large child diet of foliage and grains, and while he still has his baby spots, conduct over to a Queens Zoo a initial possibility we get! If we can’t make it, we can revisit a Wildlife Conservation Society’s website to learn some-more about what they do. If you’re feeling generous, we can also present to assistance their causes!
