Baby deer born just 1 pound at Queens Zoo
NEW YORK (WABC) -- Wildlife officials say a member of the world's smallest deer species has been born at a New York City zoo.
The doe weighed 1 pound when it was born last month at the Queens Zoo.
The fawn is part of an endangered species called the Southern pudu (POO'-doo) that's native to Chile and Argentina. They bark when they sense danger and they're good jumpers, sprinters and climbers.
Scientists from The Wildlife Conservation Society that runs the zoo are working to help preserve the deer's native South American habitats.
New York's tiny baby deer is still nursing but will soon transition to eating fresh leaves, grain and kale.
