Meet The Wonderful Pudu The Tiniest And Cutest Deer In The World.

These little guys are about the size of a domestic canine and are the smallest species of deer in the world.

 

There are 2 species of the pudu and they all reside in South America.

The southern pudu is native to Argentina and Chile, and the northern pudu to Peru, Venezuela, Ecuador, and Colombia.

They only stand between 12 to 16 inches high.

Pudus are vegan like a lot of other grazing animals, surviving on a diet of leaves, grass, seeds, and dropped fruit.

To get to foliage, they can either base on their back legs or unlike their larger deer cousins, they can also climb trees when needed.

Pudus are cautious animals and are often on red alert for any predators. When they do get chased after, they run in a zigzag, making them harder to capture by larger predators.

They are likewise fantastic at climbing and jumping when need be.

These singular animals can be located in the thick South American forests where they develop a complex system of courses to help them browse the forest’s undergrowth.

Pudus will only be seen with each other when mating, usually in the fall, prior to giving birth to one or two of their fawn in springtime.

Similar to their bigger deer cousins, male pudus are characterized by their antlers.

Their lifespan is normally in between 8 to 10 years, although this goes to risk due to many external factors such as loss of environment, as well as illness and parasites contracted from domestic canines.
