Southern Pudu

Pudu puda


The deer belonging to the Pudu genus are the smallest deer in the world , so tiny that people have even captured them for pets, thereby contributing to their decline in the wild . Similar in appearance to the northern pudu (Pudu mephistopheles), but slightly smaller, the southern pudu (Pudu puda) has a short, glossy, reddish-brown to dark-brown coat, with slightly lighter underparts and legs. Its lips and the insides of its ears are orangish.
