On May 12, 2015, the Wildlife Conservation Society announced that the Queens Zoo was now home to a baby southern male pudu fawn.
Weighing in at a little under 2 pounds at birth, the baby fawn will only grow to be 12 to 14 inches in height.
The WCS says the pudu is generally shy and solitary, and prefers to hide in thick vegetation.
They are also excellent sprinters and jumpers.
According to the WCS, the fawn is still nursing but will soon transition to a diet of fresh leaves, grain, kale, carrots and hay.
Since he can't eat leaves yet, he just plays in them for now.
Did I also mention he loves to give his mom kisses?
And she doesn't mind giving them right back.
When all is said and done, the baby fawn goes back to sleep in his flower pot bed.
If you would like to visit the baby pudu, he and his parents are on exhibit at The Wildlife Conservation Society’s Queens Zoo.
