A southern pudu fawn – the world's smallest deer species – born at the Queens Zoo couldn't be cuter and he makes Bambi look like a giant.

The tiny deer was born May 12, reported The Associated Press, but the Wildlife Conservation Society didn't send out a baby announcement until Monday saying it's a boy.

The fawn is still nursing but soon will be munching on leaves, grain, kale, carrots and hay.

The white spots on his soft brown fur will disappear as he grows up.

In his case, though, "growing up" won't be much of a vertical process.

Southern pudus tend to be around a foot tall at the shoulder.

When they're born, they're only 6 inches high — and weigh less than a pound.
