The latest big thing at the Detroit Zoo is actually quite small. A female southern pudu – the smallest species of deer – was born May 20, 2013. The fawn is the fifth pudu born at the Zoo since the species was introduced in 2008.
The Detroit Zoo’s newest top banana is sure to have mass a-peel. Akira, an adorable female chimpanzee born July 28, 2011, is charming Zoo staff and visitors alike at the Great Apes of Harambee.
