Even full-grown, the Southern pudu deer is practically pint-sized, but a brand new baby doe, born May 3, has given the Queens Zoo a double-dose of adorable.
The as-yet unnamed baby deer weighed in at just one pound when she came into the world, born to mama deer Josephine and father, Hamilton.
Even fully grown, she'll weigh just 20 pounds, and measure 12 to 14 inches tall at the shoulder.
She’s adjusting really well,” said Barbara Russo, a spokeswoman for the Wildlife Conservation Society, which runs the zoo, located at Flushing Meadows Corona Park. “She’s very cute and still nursing. She will eventually transition to solid foods.”
Those solid foods will eventually include carrots, hay, fresh leaves, grain, and -- because it's New York -- kale.
Pudu are native to Chile and Argentina, and are considered endangered.
