World’s Smallest Deer Species Born In NYC Zoo Weighs Only 1 Pound

Stashed in: Cute!, Deer!, Bored Panda

To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:


Pudu are a subspecies of the South American deer and are generally solitary animals. They bark when frightened, shiver when angered, and do not interact socially other than to mate. Pudu are so small that they count the horned owl as one of their predators, and there is a popular rumor that the deer can die from fear-induced cardiac complications.

Looks more like a dog than a deer. I'd like to hear it bark!

Names for these deer: HILARIOUS.

This is a newborn Pudu weighing one pound, but they can grow to 30 pounds, twice as big as a Dik-Dik. Lots of things are born weighing one pound.
