Thought extinct, just photographed

An animal thought extinct has recently photographed in the wild.

CNN reports it’s the first sighting of the Vietnamese mouse deer in more than 25 years.

Neither mouse nor deer, and officially known as a silver-backed chevrotain, the animal is the smallest hoofed mammal on the planet. About the size of a rabbit.

Researchers set up cameras near the beach city of Nha Trang. Over a 10-month period, they captured more than 2,000 images of the long-thought-gone creature.
