Wildlife officials say a member of the world's smallest deerspecies has been born at a New York City zoo.
The doe weighed 1 pound (0.45 kilogram) when it was born last month at the Queens Zoo.
Scientists from The Wildlife Conservation Society that runs the zoo are working to help preserve the deer's native South American habitats.
New York's tiny baby deer is still nursing but will soon transition to eating fresh leaves, grain and kale.
