What's a Pudu?

Earlier this summer, the Bristol Zoo welcomed a baby Pudu to its fold. Born weighing just 1kg (2.2lbs), the tiny youngster is part of an international conservation breeding program. Pudus are the world’s smallest species of deer, standing just 38cm at the shoulder when fully grown and weighing around 9-15kg (20-33lbs). A male’s antlers only grow to 10cm long.
