Pudu Male Haechan at 3 yrs. Photo LA Zoo

Welcome Haechan the pudu!

Celebrity pudu, Haechan, named by NCT-127 K-pop fans after their favorite performer, has arrived at the Brandywine Zoo from the Los Angeles Zoo where he was born. Haechan, now a mature young male, is celebrating his third birthday. Once the animal becomes accustomed to our climate, he will be introduced to the other pudu and then eventually to the public, most likely in the Spring 2022. The relocation is part of the Species Survival breeding program for this vulnerable species, whose numbers are decreasing in the wild. We welcome Haechan’s global fans to follow @Brandywine Zoo on Facebook and Twitter for updates.
