Yesterday, on April 30th, a tiny baby deer was born Nordens Ark in Sweden. It is a male Southern Pudu and the sixth of his brothers amd sisters that have been born at the zoo. The tiny fawn is currently playing and spending his time in an enclosure with his parents where visitors can watch!
Pudu, the South American deer, is the smallest species of deer. In the wild they live in temperate rain forests and their size helps them hide from predators. The deer has for a while been classified as “vulnerable” which is why it is so great that a fawn has been born in a zoo.
