Pudu Keeper Talk

07/15/2019, 2:30 PM to 2:45 PM

Weekly on Monday

The southern pudu is one of the world’s smallest deer, measuring just 14-17 inches in height at the shoulder. They are normally solitary, but may travel in small groups of 2-3 to feed. Males use pronounced pre-orbital glands on their head for scent-marking of territory. Pudus play an important role in their habitat, as they build and maintain tunnels in the underbrush, allowing other small animals to pass through and remain undetected by predators. You can see our pudu in Expedition Peru: Trek of the Andean Bear.
