Meet The Pudú, The World’s Smallest And Cutest Deer

Love miniature animals? Now you can add one to your list of adorable: the endangered southern pudu, which is the world's smallest deer.

Native to South America, the genus includes two species:  Pudu Mephistopheles who live in Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. And pudu puda, the most common in captivity, lives in Chile and Argentina, reported by Deer of the World Organization. 

The term "pudú" itself is derived from the Mapuche people of south-central Chile. Because they live on the slopes of the Andes Mountain Range, they are also known as the "Chilean mountain goat". 

The pudu puda can reach a height of 45 cm and weigh up to 13.4 kg, but its northern cousin never exceeds 35 cm and 6 kg. As they're extremely fearful, we know very little of how they live in the wild except that they're solitary animals with the exception of mating season. They take refuge in temperate forests, where their small size and the dense vegetation allow them to hide from predators. 

Pudús are crepuscular, most active in the morning, late afternoon, and evening. Their home range generally extends about 16 to 25 ha (40 to 62 acres), much of which consists of crisscrossing pudú-trodden paths. Today, the southern pudu's population is declining and the northern pudu is too little known for its status to be determined.

Photos From The Zoo: Baby Koala Wearing a Cast After Falling From a Tree

Aww. Let's try that again — Awwwwww.

At 150 days old and less than 500 grams, This tiny orphaned koala looks breathtakingly small. Actually, she should have still been in her mother's pouch but she was brought to Werribee Open Range Zoo by a wildlife carer three weeks ago after she fell from a tree in a Blue-gum plantation area. Sadly, her mom didn't survive and an external veterinarian had already made the difficult decision to euthanize her. 

According to National Geographic, female koalas carry their offspring inside their pouches for up to six months, but because of the unfortunate circumstances, this female joey does not have that privilege.

The baby koala is now recovering well but will it will take a year of careful monitoring before hopefully being returned to the wild.

In Borneo, many young orangutans are orphaned due to poaching and habitat loss. The babies who still have a chance at returning to the wild need to learn the survival skills their mothers would have taught them. The Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation(BOSF) rescues and rehabilitates these orangutans through a program called Forest School. Oregon Zoo primate keeper Cydney Sines and some colleagues traveled to Borneo to help train these Forest School students. Using positive reinforcement techniques, they were able to encourage the young orangutans to learn the skills they'll need to survive in the wild.
