In this May 27, 2015 photo provided by the Wildlife Conservation Society, a southern pudu fawn walks in its enclosure at the Queens Zoo in New York. The male southern pudu fawn, the world’s smallest deer species, was born May 12 at the Queens Zoo. Southern pudus tend to be around a foot tall at the shoulder. When they’re born, they’re only 6 inches high and weigh less than a pound. (Julie Larsen Maher/Wildlife Conservation Society via AP)
