Queens Zoo in New York City got the most adorable delivery on May 12 when a tiny male deer fawn was born weighing only 1 pound. The Pudu is the world’s smallest deer species, and the New York Zoo is lucky enough to now have 3 of them in their care. The latest birth has generated a lot of buzz around the Internet as people all over the world go gaga for this 1-pound cutie-pie.
Right now the little fawn is only consuming mother’s milk, but before long he will be enjoying a diet of grain, kale, leaves, carrots and hay. The newborn male deer measured 6 by 6 inches (or 15.24 x 15.24 centimeters) at birth. As an adult he will measure around 12 to 14 inches from his shoulder. As he grows the white brown spots dotting his fur will disappear.
