As the latest addition to our smallest animals collection, we bring you pudu, the world’s smallest deer. Primarily located in South America, this little guy can be as much as mere 13 inches (32 cm) tall, with a maximum length of just 33 inches (85 cm).
Originally discovered in the 19th century, the pudu usually weights about 26 pounds (12 kg), with the heaviest specimen ever recorded being measured at 30 pounds (13.5 kg).
Everything about these little guys is small, from their 3-inch (7.5 cm) ears and 2.6 inches (6.5 cm) long antlers to the tiny 1.5-inch (4 cm) tails.
As a solitary sort, pudu are marked as an endangered specie, with the destruction of rainforests currently named as their top threat and the main reason behind the pudu population decline.
