"Visitors to New York City`s Queens Zoo are fawning over a newborn southern pudu, the world`s smallest deer species.
Pudu can grow up to 14 inches at the shoulder. They are shy and can bark when they are scared. They also run in a zig-zag pattern to confuse predators. Southern pudu are native to Chile and Argentina."
Someone told me it`s all happening at the zoo. I do believe it, I do believe it`s true.
If you thought Bambi was cute, that a look at a picture of this pudu:
Pudu are on the endangered list, primarily because of overhunting and habitat loss, which begs the question: What kind of monster would hunt pudu? Anyone caught hunting pudu should be beheaded, disemboweled and set on fire.
It`s all happening at New York City`s Queen Zoo, this is the third pudu to be born there in the last three years.
The pudu are shy and easily startled, I just pray that the New York crowds won`t freak out the adorable creature.
