A Deer to Fawn Over in North Dakota

A Muntjac deer was born in February at the Red River Zoo in North Dakota.

This sweet little Muntjac deer was born late last month at the Red River Zoo in North Dakota — the first baby to be born at the zoo this year.

Now about a month old, the fawn can be seen trotting around her exhibit with her mom.

Red River Zoo breeds Muntjac to help create more diversity for the captive population in North America. Once they’re old enough, the deer often leave Fargo for other zoos to help with their breeding programs.

Muntjac are native to northern China, and are among the world’s oldest and smallest deer species.
