Are there any miniature deer?

    A new mini-deer was discovered in the Himalayas last summer, the oldest and smallest deer species; the miniature muntjac (or leaf deer). The small deer was first thought to be the young of another species, but with DNA testing was proven to be its own species. This deer is 24-30 inches tall.

    Interesting question, Delilah.

    I guess the answer depends on what you consider to be miniature.

    The smallest deer in the world, called the Pudu, is only 13 to 17 inches tall.  Compare that to the 32 to 40 inch height of a White-tailed deer, and I would say they are pretty miniature!

    Hope this helps!
