The Java mouse deer is a very unique species of animals. They are actually classified as one of the smallest hoofed mammals in the world.

When the Java mouse deer reaches maturity, it is only about the size of a rabbit! With a maximum weight of only 5 pounds, about 2.5 kilograms, the Java mouse deer remains incredibly small and adorable, with its legs no thicker than a pencil.

The Java mouse deer is actually very intelligent and is usually found in the wilderness in Thailand, Borneo and Sumatra.
