RARE PHILIPPINE MOUSE DEER BORN IN POLAND ZOO

A zoo in Wroclaw, Poland has captured the birth of a tiny mouse deer on camera for the first time ever, in a hopeful moment for the highly endangered species originating from the Philippines.

According to the Reuters report the baby chevrotain, born on Nov. 10, is the size of a large matchbox and weighs around 100 grams.

The species is characterized by its small stature, spindly legs and mouse-like head, and the birth is of particular significance because there are only a dozen chevrotains in European zoos and just one male.
Chevrotains are also very difficult to study, preferring to hide in grass and, especially when giving birth, in secluded places far from human eyes.

It is still unclear what sex the baby is, with conservationists hoping for a male to help the reproduction process.
