Zookeepers Celebrate Birth of a Rare Visayan Spotted Deer That’s on the Edge of Extinction
Animal Conservationists are happy to have midnight feedings with a rare Visayan Spotted Deer that was just born at the UK’s Chester Zoo. The nocturnal mammal is the newest addition to a breed that is fighting back from the edge of extinction. Zookeepers have named the new little fawn Lyra, after the constellation of stars. She joins a "celestial" family. Her mom is named Nova and her dad is Cosmos. She was only 6.6 pounds at birth, but could grow to over 175 pounds.
