Zoo celebrates deer new arrival

The pudu is the smallest species of deer

One of the world's smallest species of deer has been born at Edinburgh Zoo as part of a conservation drive.

The pudu, who has been named Jon by zoo keepers, is the first of his species to be delivered at the zoo since 2000.

Head keeper Darren McGarry said everyone was delighted with the tiny new arrival.

Edinburgh Zoo has been participating in a European Endangered Species Programme for pudu since 1985.

Jon, who is only 15cm long, was born on 6 February and is the first infant to parents Amber and Henry.

Mr McGarry said: "We are so happy to have a baby pudu again, as it has been a few years since the last one.

"Hopefully, this is the start of a new period of success with this endangered species at Edinburgh Zoo."

The moves are coordinated by the European studbrook keeper for the species who is based at Wuppertal Zoo in Germany.

The southern pudu live in lowland temperate rainforests in Chile and south-west Argentina.

Wild populations are most at risk through the destruction of their lowland forest habitat and natural predators such as pumas and foxes.
