An incredibly rare "mouse deer" was just caught on camera


It has been nearly 30 years since scientists have seen one, and now they have a number of pictures to look at thanks to a wildlife camera set up in Vietnam!

Here's what a representative from Global Wildlife Conservation told the LA Times:

“For so long this species has seemingly only existed as part of our imagination. Discovering that it is, indeed, still out there is the first step in ensuring we don’t lose it again, and we’re moving quickly now to figure out how best to protect it,” said An Nguyen, a conservation scientist at the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research, a partner of GWC in the project.

Exciting, right?!

Now, for the pics:
