Pudu Is The World's Smallest And Most Adorable Species Of Deer

Pictured above is the most adorable little thing ever!  This is a baby Pudu, a member of the smallest species of deer in the world!  Granted, they look a little odd, but who wouldn't hug that adorable little guy?

Below is a little Pudu and a bigger Pudu giving each other a nose kiss.

This species of deer lives in South America, particularly in Chile and Argentina, so you can relieve yourself of the worry that you'll hit one of these little guys with your car.

The Pudu is, in fact, an endangered species, and its habitat is being destroyed by deforesting.  How could the culprits' hearts not be melted by these adorable fellows?

Their small body forces these animals to rely on low-growing shrubbery, something that is contributing to their low population numbers.  Like most deer, the Pudu is a herbivore.
