I’m in the mood to write about little fellas tonight so here’s another one: the Malayan Mouse Deer.

Growing to just 18 inches tall and 4.4 pounds, the mouse deer is quite funny-looking with its big eyes, long toothpick-like legs, and a pointed little snout. But just look how cute the baby is!!! It’s just so itty bitty!
