IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) - The newest resident of the Idaho Falls Zoo looks like a typical baby deer, but it barks like a dog and has fangs like a vampire.

The 2-pound fawn is a Reeves’s muntjac, a small deer native to China and Taiwan. The Post Register newspaper (https://bit.ly/1Z5RU5N ) reports that the fawn is now on display along its mother as part of the eastern Idaho zoo’s “Little Asia” exhibit.

Aaron Young, a zookeeper who cares for the muntjacs, said in a prepared statement that it’s the cutest baby he’s seen.

The Idaho Falls Zoo is also opening a new exhibit with three rare snake species: a Thai bamboo rat snake, a Mandarin rat snake and two albino Burmese pythons. The “Jewels of Asia” exhibit will stay open through Labor Day.
