One Pound Deer.

  karma level 73026

This tiny deer was delivered by Caesarean section at a wildlife hospital after a car killed his mother...  Little Rupert, who is so small he can fit  in an adult's hand, was born after vets failed in their battle to  save his mother.

At just six inches  tall and weighing just over a pound, he is now in an incubator in  the intensive care unit at Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital in  Buckinghamshire.  He has only recently opened his  eyes.

Les Stocker,  founder of Tiggywinkles, said, "Rupert's mother had very severe  injuries.  We brought him out and got him breathing, and then  he went into an incubator on oxygen.  He is now being fed by  a tube."

Tucked up:   Rupert in an incubator.

Rupert pulls a  striking pose for the camera.

Staff members are  optimistic that Rupert, now five days old, will make a full  recovery.  "Deer are very, very tricky, but this one has  spirit.  He's an extremely feisty little guy and quite  pushy," Mr. Stocker said.

Asleep:   Rupert takes 40 winks.
