The Queens Zoo has a tiny new addition.

The southern Pudu fawn seen above is the newest member of the world's smallest deer species.

She weighed one pound at birth and will grow to be just a little more than a foot tall and weigh only 20 pounds.

The zoo said Pudu make up for their small stature with smarts, barking when they sense danger and using strategy to avoid predators.

They are only found in the wild in Chile or Argentina.
