Clover and Ande


Their name may not sound appealing, but don’t let that fool you–the subjects of the Brandywine Zoo’s latest fundraiser are so cute, they’ll win you over.

Zoo spokesman Mark Shafer said the zoo is fortunate to have a pair of South American Pudu–so what’s a Pudu, anyway?

“They are the world’s second-smallest deer, they stand, like, 14 to 17 inches in height. They are in danger, there’s only 10,000 left in the world in the wild, and they come from Argentina and Chile, and there are only 200 in zoos worldwide, and we actually have a pair,” said Shafer.
